OUR MISSION
Susie King Taylor Community School seeks to cultivate a vibrant, academically challenging learning community that celebrates each individual's gifts and instills in students a sense of stewardship as members of the Savannah community and as citizens of the world. Through experiential learning that emphasizes both quiet reflection and group collaboration, we empower students to critically examine the world and activate their capacity for creating lasting positive change.

OUR CORE VALUES
● Transformative Teaching and Learning - Transformative relationships between teachers and students provide the environment within which teachers challenge their students to hold themselves to high academic standards, to demonstrate mastery over their learning, and to develop lifelong habits of scholarship and intellectual curiosity. All students will be supported in choosing and designing some learning experiences. The result is a learner who understands both the content and process of learning.
● Creating a Peaceful School Learning Environment - To act responsibly, peacefully and with personal integrity, students must know, value, and respect themselves and others.
● Unity in Diversity - We recognize that diversity in people, beliefs, and knowledge enriches learning through the exploration, understanding, and appreciation of differences and the power of affirming common ground.
● Responsibility to Others - Our shared fate and social responsibility leads us to practice good stewardship in all our daily actions and decisions.

Teachers will be “at-will” contracted employees of Susie King Taylor Community School.
