Welcome to the Bremerton School District!
We Are Bremerton!
We Are Bremerton Model
Engage. Empower. Excel.
The We are Bremerton Model is our recipe for success. This recipe consists of five key ingredients. We know when we provide a safe, supportive, consistent, and socially-just environment our staff and student thrive.
Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and we know students and staff thrive when they feel a strong sense of belonging to their school. Learning is the cornerstone of what we do and we know students develop and grow when they are engaged in rigorous, relevant, and responsive learning. When students are empowered we know they thrive and are self-determined, developing a sense of purpose and hope for the future. Students thrive when schools provide support to meet their needs to provide access to early, timely evidence-based interventions.
Equity, trauma-invested, and family partnerships are the three guiding principles that represent the lens and the mindset through which we as educators approach what we do in service of promoting outcomes for our students. Rather than stand on their own separate area of work, these guiding principles are infused throughout our efforts to bring to life each of the ingredients in our school buildings so students receive as high-quality experiences and support as possible to promote their success inside and outside of school.
As lifelong learners, our students will develop the confidence, skills, and perseverance to choose their future and become thriving, contributing members and leaders of society.
The Bremerton School District, together with families and community members, provides equitable education opportunities and supports for all students to provide them the foundation to live productive and rewarding lives.
