The mission of Henry J. Kalfas Magnet School, in cooperation with home and community, is to provide a child-centered, stimulating and culturally diverse environment which will foster the development of lifetime productive learners.
Henry J. Kalfas Magnet School believes that . . .
  • A good education empowers children to become critical thinkers, problem solvers and life-long learners
  • Children learn best when they are stimulated and challenged by lessons and activities based on their individual learning style
  • Children are motivated when they have excellent teachers in a safe and nurturing environment where they feel respected, understood and valued
  • Children need to respect diversity and appreciate the world around them
  • Parents are critical to the learning of their children
  • The role of parents must be one that is supportive and loving
  • Parents must provide the role of instilling values and personal responsibility
  • Children feel pride in learning when their parents are partners in the education process
  • A good education encourages students to take personal and civic pride in their home and community
  • Together with the support of parents, the community and the school, our children will receive a great education
