Myra S. Barnes Intermediate School 24 is dedicated to the belief that all students can meet high standards of excellence.
The school will provide a positive and supportive environment for all students, staff and parents. This will emphasize the school and commitment in ensuring the children's cognitive, creative, and social growth.
All our students will develop academic and social skills and responsibilities which will enable them to become productive and law-abiding citizens of the community. ("All students" refers to both special and general education students.)
