Copeland's mission is to cultivate lifelong learners one individual at a time. In support of this mission we promote academic excellence in an environment that embraces individual differences. We challenge our students daily and stress the importance of individual responsibility and perseverance. We believe that the education of children is a partnership between home and school. Parent involvement is crucial to the academic and social development of students. We encourage our parents to participate in the educational process. Copeland expects every child to have a successful educational experience. This goal becomes reality when families and schools work together with respect and trust in the pursuit of educational excellence for children.
