NBIS Mission Statement
The mission of North Branford Intermediate School is to foster a strong learning environment focused on academic excellence and a positive school climate, preparing each student to be a responsible 21st Century citizen of the world.
North Branford Intermediate School is committed to enhancing the spirit of our students. As a school community where respect for self and others is highly valued, it is important to teach students to utilize high standards when making good academic and personal choices. In order to assist students with this process, NBIS is using a program entitled Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS).
PBIS is an approach to teaching and supporting positive behaviors in order to meet the needs of all the students. This school wide approach to discipline focuses on building a safe and positive environment in which all students can learn. The foundation of PBIS at NBIS utilizes the acronym PRIDE that represents the following expectations.
R – Respect
I - Integrity
D – Dependability
E – Empathy
The Davis Way
To recognize the career and honor the legacy of former NBIS Principal Alan Davis, North Branford Intermediate School is proud to present “The Davis Way”. The Davis way is both a physical tribute to Mr. Davis in recognition of his 43 years of loyal service to the North Branford Public Schools, as well as a philosophy which will support our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports) PRIDE program and promote a positive school climate for years to come.
The Davis Way Philosophy
A philosophy that embodies integrity, humility and the symbolic meaning of the hawk itself: wisdom, focusing on the task at hand and using the power of observation. The Davis Way embraces these attributes as well as the belief that school is a place for learning, growing, laughing, belonging and generosity of heart.
