Teaching and learning, community, communication, respect, and responsibility are the core values at Haynes. Children are encouraged to explore, ask questions, and search for solutions. They are affirmed that perseverance, mistakes, and struggle are essential ingredients of true learning. Children are not judged on their learning; rather they are assessed on their progress toward becoming successful and independent learners.

Haynes is firmly committed to teaching excellence. The staff is constantly engaged in reflection, lifelong learning, and their own individual journeys as effective educators. As a teaching community, we embrace the most current and accepted approaches that assure viable and dynamic learning opportunities for our students, and seek to find new and better ways of meeting the needs of each child.
