At ARISE, we will create engaging learning environments that are differentiated to be rigorous for all learners and anchored in social and restorative justice.
The MISSION of ARISE High School is to empower ourselves with the skills, knowledge, and agency to become highly educated, humanizing, critically conscious, intellectual, and reflective
At ARISE we nurture, train, and discipline our school community to engage in a continuous practice of developing mind, heart, and body towards a VISION where we actively rise up. Agency and self-determination drive our struggle to improve our own material and social conditions towards a more healthy, equitable, and just society.
STEM MISSION AND VISION at ARISE
All ARISE graduates have built the knowledge, skills, and agency to be successful in college and career. ARISE S.T.E.M. and Pathway courses provide grade level, rigorous instruction and academic supports to all ARISE students to both remediate gaps in S.T.E.M. skills and knowledge, and emphasize critical thinking and problem solving. All S.T.E.M. and Pathway courses at ARISE instill a fundamental interest in S.T.E.M. for each ARISE student by: grounding each course in cultural relevance, aligning each course to our Public and Community Health Pathway, and providing scaffolds and differentiation for each lesson. Through this work, each ARISE student will see themselves in their S.T.E.M. classes as: scientists, health professionals, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, or researchers and empower themselves to transform their communities as agents of change.
Humanities MISSION AND VISION at ARISE
All ARISE graduates have built the knowledge, skills, and agency to be successful in college and career. ARISE Humanities courses provide grade level, rigorous, culturally relevant instruction that emphasizes the 5 Cs of the Graduate Profile (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, community transformation, and critical consciousness) while empowering students to grow into agents of change in their communities. Knowledge, skills, and agency build over time from 9th through 12th grades to prepare students for college-level coursework and professional careers. Academic supports and differentiation create opportunities for all students to successfully access Humanities courses and help remediate gaps in literacy skills and knowledge.
