    Hunter is a CHAMPS school, dedicated to building students’ academic skills and helping them become responsible and respectful students. CHAMPS structures help reduce classroom disruptions, improve the school climate, and improve student on task behavior. We believe all students should be taught the skills and behaviors needed for success. Motivation and responsibility should be encouraged through positive interactions and building student relationships. The misbehavior of students is a teaching opportunity. All students and staff must be treated with dignity and respect.
