Our Mission

  • The Naches Trail community of students, parents, teachers, support staff, and neighbors value education and life-long learning.  We facilitate the engagement of each student in a safe, caring, orderly, and supportive environment.  The staff at Naches Trail provides standards-based instruction driven by formative assessments combined with goal setting. We maintain high expectations while providing differentiated instruction that acknowledges individual differences and learning styles. We work as a TEAM with the common goal to promote the academic and social growth of all students through the modeling of thoughtful, positive relationships, and the qualities and preparation needed to be successful adults.
