Families joining Hiawatha Academies are all asked to sign a Commitment to Excellence Contract, that binds us in our shared vision for our scholars.

Student’s Commitment

I will show my commitment to Hiawatha College Prep-Northrop by upholding our school values:

  • Joy
  • Agency
  • Empathy
  • Reflection
  • Commitment to Community


I will do this by:

  • Being Respectful by doing these things:
    Following first requests
    Using kind words to myself and others
    Asking for what I need in ways that work for my community
  • Being Responsible
    Collaborating productively
    Creating space that helps everyone learn
    Honoring our community by keeping it safe and calm
  • Being My Best
    Being on time
    Being prepared with all classwork and homework complete to the best of my ability
    Completing classwork and following classroom expectations
    Doing better today than I did yesterday
