What makes VOICE different?
At VOICE, it’s not just about music. It’s about people. It’s about what you can be. It’s about using your passion. It’s about relationships. It’s about having the ability to choose. It’s about caring enough. It’s about every child and adult.
We believe in efficiency. At the heart of our academic culture is the idea that all students are capable of succeeding in any discipline. At VOICE, all students will learn – being smart isn’t something you are, it’s something you become. At VOICE, you will be pushed to become more.
We support and develop the effectiveness of our teachers. We believe teachers need time to collaborate to grow their practice, so we provide our team with over two hours of planning time per day as well as extra days for collaborative thinking partnership and planning during the school year.
We encourage participation in music and the arts. As music and art help develop problem-solving and critical-thinking skills and open children’s imaginations, all VOICE students participate in and learn from daily arts activities, including training rigorous choir. We design our arts-integrated curriculum to bring joy and wonder into the lives of our children, providing them with the skills to forge their own path.
All VOICE staff:
∙ To love and nurture all of our students as they grow into deeply caring and responsible individuals; ∙ Take personal responsibility and work collaboratively to ensure that all students succeed and grow, understanding that the performance and progress of our students is directly under our control; ∙ Ask questions and give students the means to exercise their curiosity and to wonder about the world around them; ∙ Hold yourself to the highest standards;
∙ Push and support themselves, their students and their colleagues;
