School Mission
The mission of the Widener Partnership Charter School (WPCS) is to develop urban elementary (K-8) students with the behaviors, task commitment and creativity to succeed in the current educational environment. Through holistic cultivation of children’s resources, the WPCS will enable students to become self-motivated, competent, and lifelong learners. The school will aim to educate its students to become citizens of character who can contribute to the vitality and well-being of the region.
By providing a multicultural, student-centered environment in which all students are held to high academic and behavioral standards and by engaging parents and caregivers as partners in the education of their children, the WPCS will provide the context for students to work in collaborative relationships both within and outside the school to provide service to the greater community.
