School District Mission

The Huerfano School District Re-1 provides a safe learning environment and exceptional educational opportunities for all students to succeed in an ever-changing world.

We are committed to providing quality education to all students, and in so doing, we attempt to help each child develop to his/her fullest capacity. Our aim is to provide learning experiences that will enable our students to function in society. We strive to have our students see the relationship in the immediate world around them and appreciate the contributions made by others. We wish to have our students realize that they are important members of our society.

It should be emphasized that the schools support the basic principle that every individual should have freedom of choice regarding the form of his/her career, subject to his/her personal limitations and the rights of others.

Our public schools are, therefore, dedicated to the development of ideals, knowledge, skills, attitudes and behavior, which will promote the development of an individual to live in our society.

It is our firm hope, that as a result of our efforts, our students will demonstrate the ability to think critically and objectively and be able to contribute to our ever-changing society.
