FHP's Values & Commitments
Regardless of which program students are involved in, our commitment to investigating and meeting the needs of the community through the following established values will apply:
- Nurturing and Respectful Environments: we acknowledge and value the many differences that exist within our community and seek to celebrate and support them accordingly.
- Low student/teacher ratios: we have found that a maximum of 16 students per class is optimal in our setting and will strive to keep our class sizes below this number.
- First name basis: we prefer to be addressed by our first names as we see ourselves on an equal level as the students that we serve.
- Multi-age classrooms: we believe in the benefits that multi-age classrooms can offer to individual students, classrooms, teachers and the culture of the entire program.

Portfolio of Schools
District 49 will create a robust portfolio of distinct and exceptional schools. It’s not enough just to have a bunch of different kinds of schools; the district needs to have high quality, exceptional schools. District 49 strives to offer wonderful schools in all of its zones, schools that are different from each other and superior to the options students might have in neighboring districts and communities.District 49’s board-approved strategic plan provides unified vision, goals and strategies to prepare students to achieve like never before. Its strategic plan is organized around a a big rocks metaphor. If the district identifies and focuses on what's most important – its big rocks of trust, community, best district, portfolio of schools and every student – and then adds other things around them, the medium-sized rocks, and finally works in the pebbles, everything better fits together. District 49 has applied this metaphor in its strategic plan, which identifies the district's Big Rocks. These strategic initiatives will be emphasized over the upcoming years, representing the district’s commitment to its community. These five rocks are its foundation for building an excellent future with its staff, students and greater community.
