"We Will Support All Students Academically and Socially Together"

Learning takes precedence over every other activity at Daniel J. Savage Middle School. Students, parents and staff strive toward the positive aspects of education and believe that every student can learn and shall be treated with respect and dignity. Social responsibility is a series of choices and students must be aware of the proper expectations for behavior so the decisions they make are correct ones.

Daniel J. Savage is a partner in the Sylvan Union School District with the following shared beliefs:

    • Every individual has worth.

    • Every individual can learn.

    • Every individual has the right to a safe learning environment.

    • Every individual has the right to an effective education.

    • Every action/choice of an individual has an effect.

    • Learning goes beyond the walls of the classroom and occurs throughout a lifetime

    • Families are essential to the well-being of the individual and a critical component of the learning process.
