Our Core Values

Everyone takes great pride in our school and we consistently work to improve on our Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Relevance and Community. We are proud of our students and staff and are confident that they work very hard to make Brattleboro Union High School an institution that brings pride to our entire community.


The students, staff and parents of BUHS share the following core values that define our mission and shape our vision and our community. We seek to create a community whose members demonstrate a commitment to the academic, civic and social expectations of our school.

Individual: All members of this community must be responsible for being a part of a safe, supportive and productive environment. 
Academic: We seek to foster academic skills and habits that lead to academic and career success. Social: We seek to foster, develop, and model responsible behavior. 

We value and expect respect among all members of the BUHS community. 

We value connections among a student’s present abilities, experiences, interests, post-graduate plans and that student’s education here.

We value an educational experience that goes beyond academics and an environment that fosters positive and productive interpersonal relationships in both BUHS and the wider community.
