At Mid-Pacific, we see children with original ideas and perspectives, with dreams, aspirations, emotions, and insights. We see students who celebrate these many characteristics and interests... and define who they are and how they learn. Faculty, administration, and staff are key components in this equation.

The Mid-Pacific faculty and staff recognize that the world has become a comprehensive and complex network of ideas and systems, forged by an interdependent global economy and ubiquitous technology. They also recognize that in order to prepare our children for a rapidly changing world, they must reflect specific skills and practices required for this century: An ethical approach to collaboration and communication, critical thinking and problem solving, and assessing and analyzing information. These necessary skills are equally matched by the need to adopt creativity and imagination, entrepreneurship, and cross-cultural approaches to our everyday interactions. By combining these essential elements within our exceptional learning environment, the exceptional faculty and staff at Mid-Pacific help our students realize their full potential as innovators, artists, and individuals.
