OUR VISION: 

The vision of HW Smith PreK8 School is to be highly regarded for academic excellence where every student is achieving at his or her maximum potential in an engaging, inspiring and challenging learning environment. 

 

Developing a Growth Mindset

 
Instead of... Try thinking...
I'm not good at this What am I missing?
I give up I'll use a different strategy
It's good enough Is this really my best work?
I can't make this any better I can always improve
This is too hard This may take some time
I made a mistake Mistakes help me learn
I just can't do this I am going to train my brain
I'll never be that smart I will learn how to do this
Plan A didn't work There's always Plan B
My friend can do it I will learn from my friend
