Rigor, Relevance and Relationships.
These are three keys objectives for any student to be successful. Rigor is hard work and is required not just for school, but is a lifelong skill. Relevance would be the “when will I use this in life?” that we hear from students. How does what you are doing in the classroom relate to real life situations?  Relationships are a key component in life, both personally and professionally. The person who cannot maintain positive relationships with people will find it very difficult to find or keep a job. Having the ability to do all three of these objectives will help any student become a success in whatever they choose to do in life.
