Best. Effort. Always.

Families play an integral role in student achievement and success at school. We want to work with you to support your child’s growth.


One way we are doing this is through the “Best. Effort. Always.” vision. We expect each student at Ford to show us his or her best effort each and every day. It isn’t about the final mark… it is about the growth from where ever he/she starts. We are working towards building “grit” and having the ability to keep trying when work is tough. We believe this can have a life-long impact. Consider watching Angela Duckworth’s “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance” on Youtube to understand our hope and vision for our students. Perhaps you can carry this motto into your home too!
