S.T.A.R. Values

Safe. Thoughtful. Accountable. Respectful. By fostering these values in every member of the Next Door family—students, parents, teachers and staff—we set a foundation for success that goes much deeper than academics. When children learn the power of respect, the value of owning their own behaviors, and the importance of thinking through challenges—all within a safe and loving environment—that’s how every child becomes a STAR.
