The school’s mission, vision, core values, and motto must align and represent the brand and overarching message that the school and community stakeholders want to share with others. The mission represents the school’s purpose, the vision represents the outcomes for students and staff, and the core values are the character traits and personal ideals that stakeholders hold themselves accountable to and internalize as they function in both the school and their lives. The motto is a short phrase or slogan that excites and reminds stakeholders of the school’s purpose and goal. While each are separate in design, when combined they solidify, exemplify, and symbolize the entire organization and provide the unified goals and outcomes that all stakeholders work to accomplish.
