Chain of Command

Our Guiding Principles

At AMS, we believe all students are entitled to learn in a safe, positive and supportive environment allowing them to reach their highest academic and behavioral success. As our mascot is the DRAGON, Andersen Middle School has identified 5 guiding principles to support Dragon Pride. Classroom and school wide expectations for behavior are based on these principles. Keeping in mind that our motto is Dragon Pride Starts Inside, the Principles and supporting characteristics are based on the acronym P.R.I.D.E. The principles and characteristics are:

Preparation - Responsibility - Integrity - Determination - Excellence (P.R.I.D.E.)

Preparation - Be ready to learn and participate in my education.

  • Bring all necessary materials to every class.
  • Complete and turn in work and homework by the due date.
  • Dress according to the school dress code.

Responsibility - Be responsible for my learning and the learning of those around me.

  • Dress, behave, and speak in a manner that demonstrates respect to other students, staff and visitors.
  • Be punctual to each class and designated activity.
  • Have and maintain the student agenda.

Integrity - Do the right thing even when no one is watching.

  • Be accountable for my actions and the consequences that follow.
  • Respect intellectual property rights when completing all assignments.
  • Respect the cultural diversity of our student body and community.
  • Respect personal property of others and public property of the school.

Determination - Exhibit a determined attitude to do my best in all tasks.

  • Set behavior and academic goals.
  • Show effort and try even when the task is difficult.
  • Exhibit persistence and dedication to all tasks to achieve the end results.

Excellence - Push myself to achieve excellence in all I do!

  • All students should follow examples of behaviors promoted by the guiding principles at all times, including before school, at dismissal, and all school sponsored events and trips. Dragon behavior represents the whole school as well as visitors in the community.

The Blueprint for Continuous Improvement is DoDEA’s strategic plan for school years 2018/19 through 2023/24.  The title reflects the philosophy that drives DoDEA’s strategic direction.  A blueprint is an actionable plan that communicates and guides the work of all involved in a project.  It is flexible and can be updated as the project develops and needs change.  This is also true of our Blueprint, which serves as the foundation for all planning within DoDEA and directs our collective energies and resources as we strive to realize our vision. Further, the Blueprint will be continuously updated to reflect progress and shifts in students’ needs and the environment.

Shared Responsibility:  Partnerships among families, students, staff, and community members are characterized by mutual commitment and collaborative effort that enrich the lives of our students.
