Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide students with educational skills, social skills, and social consciousness, through step-by-step accomplishments; while building student self-esteem, self-motivation, and self-determination to succeed in an adult world.


Students know they are in charge of their own learning. Each student knows and acts on his/her own learning plan.
Being at Pegasus is an opportunity to make up credits and to turn your lives around. Students know to take advantage of this chance by showing up on time, in dress code, and ready to learn every day.
Students recognize achievement is personal. Students know academic achievement is an important piece of a successful life. Students work hard to achieve their personal goals.
Respect & Responsibility
Students respect themselves. Students respect each other. Students respect their teachers, their school, and their community. Students take responsibility for demonstrating this respect in everything they do.
