Strategic Plan

Gorilla Vision 2035 aims to extend its impact to future graduates. This five-year strategic plan highlights six focus areas, the steps taken towards progress, an evaluation of the effort, and supporting data for each.

When creating this strategic plan, USD 393 kept in mind our two long-term goals:

1) Increase the rigor in all students creating greater opportunities.

2) Adapt to the needs of our students to prepare them for their future.

At our school, our mission is anchored in the belief that education is the cornerstone of tomorrow's leadership. That's why our motto is "Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow." We are devoted to fostering an environment where students thrive. Our commitment extends beyond academics; it embraces the holistic development of young individuals. We are dedicated to sculpting a Portrait of a Graduate who is not only academically prepared but also equipped with life skills and career readiness.
