SAU 70 schools are an active learning community that provides broad academic and cocurricular programs. We engage students' minds, hearts and voices so that they become educated, caring and responsible adults. All students are given the opportunity and encouragement to use their:
  • Minds to pursue excellence, academic challenge and personal success.
  • Hearts to respect and care for the emotional and physical well-being of themselves and others, and for the environment.
  • Voices to speak for the common good.
