Mueller Charter School students explained, “Our teachers care so much about us as people and make sure we achieve our very best.”   Throughout the school, students benefit from high expectations and a culture of excellence.  Students, parents, and teachers share an enthusiasm for their school community as the best place to learn and work.  In their Symposium session, Mueller leaders will explain how they shaped a culture in which elementary and middle school students feel valued and capable.  They will emphasize how Mueller has helped teachers create and sustain a culture in which students feel like they belong and where their academic and social success is likely.
