Our mission is to provide a strong academic program based on: 1) the learning theories of how
students learn best in order to accelerate academic growth of all students and 2) the principles of
"Quality, Compassion and Effort" emboddied in the America Dream . AFCS will prepare
students to Seize the American Dream by focusing on the following values: Work Hard, Learn
Everything You Can, Always Do Your Very Best, Help Others and success will follow.
Quality is reflected in everything we do. The road toward EXCELLENCE is paved by
quality work. We believe in striving for excellence and not settling for mediocrity. We will
build a learning community that will focus on academic achievement by reflecting on the
quality of each daily task and academic performance. We want all our students to produce
quality work by becoming aware of what quality work looks like and endeavor to produce
Compassion is exemplified in our concern and commitment to everyone, recognizing that
we all share universal traits as human beings; yet, we all embrace and celebrate our unique
cultural identities. Our aim is to demonstrate compassion by being of service to our
community, by improving always on what we have accomplished and finding ways of
helping others in the community. We, at AFCS, want our students to become productive
citizens by giving back to the school and community.
Effort in education is observed as working hard and struggling through confusion without
giving up. We will encourage students to persevere the struggle, to persist by staying on task
and continuing to struggle until they learn the task. Effort will be demonstrated in our
school's commitment to each student. We will lead by example, showing our commitment to
our students and practicing positive character and leadership skills to them. AFCS will be a
learning community that will help students work until their goals are met.
