Mission & Beliefs

Click to translate to Spanish

The Johnsburg Central School District operates 30 schools with an enrollment of over 30,000 students.  All of our schools are accredited by the Adirondack Association of Colleges and Schools.

The ACSD Board of Education recognizes that no one philosophy of education can express the total sentiments or beliefs of all teaching personnel.  Generally, education is perceived as a process of growth and includes the mental, moral, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of the individual.

Each student is seen as a unique person who possesses certain potential, needs, aspirations, and interests.  As each student is different, the purpose of education is to provide appropriate experiences in school which develop maximum achievement so each individual will become a useful and productive member of society.
