• At Draper Intermediate we believe that ALL students can learn and must learn at relatively high levels.  We are confident that with our foundation of strong relationships students can master challenging academic material.  Because of this, we are prepared to work collaboratively with colleagues, students, and parents to achieve this shared educational purpose.

    Draper's teachers address the four significant questions about student learning during team meetings.  
    • What knowledge and skills should every student acquire as a result of this unit of instruction?
    • How will we know when each student has acquired the essential knowledge and skills?
    • How will we respond when some students do not learn?
    • How will we extend and enrich the learning for students who are already proficient?
    Draper's teachers modify and adjust lessons, brainstorm with colleagues, as well as continually learn the best practices to use with students. 
    Our collaboration centers on three Big Ideas:
     Focus on Learning
     Collaborative and Collective Effort
    Results Oriented to Assess Effectiveness
