Ms. Gourdine-Broadways’ Educational Philosophy: As a leader I have a genuine passion to guide our youth into a successful future. I believe that every scholar has the right to experience a well-rounded education. Scholars can learn anything if they are given a clear blueprint for success. Preparing our scholars academically will assist them with challenges that may await them. I feel it is my responsibility to maintain a clear, organized and structured process for instructional staff to provide quality, rigorous instruction. I pledge to maintain an open door policy to all staff, scholars, parents, and community leaders, as I feel this is necessary for all to be successful.
