Strategic Plan

Middle School students on an OEE trip, gathered in a circle to reflect

For nearly 30 years, The McGillis School has inspired learners in the start of a lifetime, and this strategic plan presents the start of our future. Our plan encompasses enduring priorities for the School:  community, program, and resources, while considering the goals within these that serve our community's mission, purpose, vision, and values. 

The goals we have identified spark actions that will be driven by the School to nurture these priorities and help us grow while remaining firmly rooted in our values. Some goals focus on immediate needs, while others envision progress over the next 1-3 years. The commitment from the Board to engage in a dynamic strategic process allows us, encourages us even, to analyze and adapt our plan each year to assure our focus is in the best place to support our community and values. 


The Strategic Plan is the culmination of extensive efforts by Board members, staff, faculty, parents, and other community members who devoted time, energy, insight, and creativity to this endeavor. The ambitions put forth excite our imaginations and deepen our commitment to educate children and instill in our students a love of learning, the abilities to think critically and live ethically, and to appreciate the value of each individual.
