Vision and Mission Statement

Tierra del Sol’s vision centers around our motto, “Every Student, Every Day”. Every student is an integral part of an innovative learning community, focused around science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and the arts. All TdS students will have equitable access to a high quality STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) and Immersion education that embraces the 4C’s- Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity- which are the super skills for the 21st century that will prepare students to succeed in a world in which they can not yet imagine. Upon promotion, students from TdS will leave with an expectation for high achievement, respect for their school environment and their surrounding community. Students will also leave with a life-long learning attitude that provides a strong foundation to excel in any successful secondary institution, including those that promote a STEAM, Immersion, and/or college and career-readiness curriculum. “Every Student, Every Day” is a creed that all stakeholders, including administration, staff, parents and students, will embrace and live by to facilitate the best learning environment throughout the school year.


  • We believe in learning environments which foster exciting, active, co-operative learning experiences which celebrate and value the worth of individual diversity.
  • We believe in learning environments that are safe,accepting,respectful and nurturing and include standards of responsibility and accountability. 
  • We believe in global learning partnerships built upon collaboration and teamwork.
  • We believe that everyone…staff, students, parents, and community are valued partners in the educational process.
