Dear Raleigh Park Students and Parents:

On behalf of the Raleigh Park staff, it is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! Raleigh Park is a proud learning community, steeped in tradition and excellence. In my 3rd year here, I can say I’ve seen and experienced what makes Raleigh Park the wonderful place it is!  To its core, the strength of Raleigh Park is embodied in the dedicated educators who work daily to instill the knowledge and skills that prepare our students for all that the 21st century has to offer.

To this end, I am thrilled that Raleigh Park has been been designated an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) World School.  The Primary Years Programme values inquiry as a means to encourage students to seek understanding of their identity as learners, preparing them for everything the world has to offer.

Moreover, Raleigh Park is designated as a Future Ready pilot school.  According to the Beaverton School District's Future Ready Vision"Education should be collaborative, responsive and relevant, prepare all students to adapt to an ever changing future, and inspire and support teachers to innovate instructional practice and professional learning."  Future Ready schools have committed to building-wide change, integrating technology into the teaching and learning process, inclusive of a Library Instructional Technology Teacher (LITT). This newly created position collaborates with classroom teachers and specialists, helping them integrate research, cutting-edge teaching skills and tools into the learning process to support change and innovation.

At Raleigh Park, we honor the Beaverton School District’s Pillars of Learning that expect EXCELLENCE, INNOVATION, EQUITY and COLLABORATION. We hold a shared vision of education that values the needs of the individual learner in an environment of high expectations.  We will nurture and challenge your child to THINK (creatively & critically), KNOW (master content), ACT (self-direct & collaborate), and GO (navigate locally & globally).  I invite you to join us on this journey!

At Raleigh Park, graduation starts here!
