J. F. Dion Vision and Mission Statement

"Think, Dream, Believe, Achieve"


At J. F. Dion School every child will have the opportunities and experiences necessary to learn, think and grow into a well rounded, productive and responsible person.


The educational process is a partnership between family, school, and community.

Education includes all of a child's capabilities - intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and moral.

Learning is a lifelong activity and is a primary means of achieving one's goals.

Positive-self concept and respect for others are fundamental to learning and growing.

Children need to be taught early to respect their home, family, community, and school and to take responsibility for their actions

Children have different abilities, learning styles and rates of development

Every child should have an equal opportunity regardless of race, nationality or ethnic origin, color, religion, sex or ability
