Magnet Vision

Vision Statement
 
The John C. Fremont Math, Science and Technology Learning Community provides students with standards based/college preparatory curriculum in two small school settings: the Magnet School and Academy. While we have a math, science and technology emphasis, we believe in a holistic approach to education which recognizes and celebrates our students' uniqueness. Therefore, we also incorporate that arts and humanities into our curriculum as we focus on providing students with the skills to use technology as a means of communication. As students learn and use technology, and as they gain knowledge of how technology plays a vital role in all aspects of an increasing global society, students will become more empowered and self-directed.
 
The reality of the networked global economy is that any desk job can be moved anywhere in the world within seconds. Our students must learn global survival skills of competing and cooperating with people around the world.          - Alan November
 
By building a capacity for global communication and collaboration in the classroom, teachers and students will have the opportunity to expand classroom walls in new and exciting ways.
 
Our students are hard working, respectful and motivated and have an open mind about going to college. Our teachers are dedicated to ongoing professional development and interdisciplinary teaching. Our staff views parents as critical allies in education; we encourage, build, and support strong ongoing relationship with such diverse groups as the USC-affiliated MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement) and Fremont Youth Empowered through Action (FRE-YEA). Our mission is for students to develop that academic,social and civic skills that are required to make informed choices when they graduate. A focus on math, science and technology is a means, not an end; our students' achievements--in all areas of their lives--is the measure of our success.
