Mission & Values

The Mission of the York Region District School Board is “To advance student achievement and well-being through public education, which motivates learners, fosters inclusion, inspires innovation and builds community.”

In active support of our Board's mission, our collective energies at Wismer Public School are focused on:
Our Mission
Our purpose is to...

  • maximize excellence in student learning and achievement
  • provide a safe, caring, and inviting atmosphere for learning
  • promote a life-long love of learning
  • inspire the learners in our care to approach life experiences with enthusiasm,
  • integrity, resilience, responsibility, and confidence
  • facilitate the making of meaningful "learning connections" 

Our Vision
We will ...
  • model excellence, personal character, and integrity
  • uphold high academic standards and conduct
  • engage our students and learners 
  • strive to meet the diversity of individual needs and learning styles of all our students
  • embrace opportunities to improve, develop, and enhance our teaching practices
  • provide a climate conducive to social, emotional, and personal growth, well-being, broadening perspective, participation, and success
Our Values
We believe in ...
  • effective, open, honest, courteous, and genuine communication
  • engaging learners and embracing active involvement
  • the critical balance between "pressure" and "support"
  • the power of collaboration in learning and working effectively with others
  • respect for self, others, and the environment
  • personal responsibility, ownership, accountability, and strong work ethic
  • the Integrated Arts as an important vehicle for learning and character development 
  • the responsible use of resources
  • inclusion, understanding, acceptance of differences, and equality of opportunity
  • the importance of seeking input and feedback
  • learning experiences that are "real life" based
  • the benefits, enjoyments, and satisfactions of life-long learning
  • celebrating our successes 
Wismer Public School continues to evolve as a thriving centre for learning.  Our staff, students, and community endeavor to engage and empower every student to learn, to achieve success to his/her full potential, and to participate responsibly in a changing Canadian society.
In short, working together, we diligently strive for all of our students to experience and reap the rewards associated with a strong, academic, results-oriented program, within a culture of caring and character. 
In keeping with our Board's and our school's "Mission, Vision, and Values" statement, we greatly value the positive, purposeful, and focused instructional and working climate here at Wismer ... one that ultimately facilitates better learning and success for all.  We are very proud and appreciative of the many positive comments we have received in this regard from our students, parents, Supply Teachers, and other visitors.
Today, more than ever, students need to learn more than the "three Rs" in order to become productive citizens of the future.  Towards this end, we endeavor to instill in our students a strong sense of values, by modeling and practicing the fundamental building blocks of personal character and worth.  This, of course, also involves an understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a "world citizen";  given that our school community represents over 35 different first languages spoken at home, this global perspective is certainly "alive and well" at Wismer.
