The staff of Col. Zadok Magruder High School, a large public high school with deeply embedded traditions and a focus on the future, works together with our diverse students and their families to create a positive learning environment accessible to all students, where integrity and a sense of community are paramount. Through meaningful co-curricular activities, equitable support systems and rigorous instruction, we promote the development of literate, responsible, well-rounded members of society.
This we believe:
* Teachers must be passionate about their vocation, their subjects, and working with students.
* Cooperation among students and a partnership among teachers, students and families are necessary to enhance the learning process.
* Effective education develops the whole person - intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically.
* Learning how to learn provides the necessary framework for academic success throughout a student's academic and professional life.
