Our Mission and Values

Our Mission
HMS School educates, nurtures, and cares for children and young adults with complex physical disabilities resulting from cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury or other neurological impairments, with the goal of enabling each to reach his or her maximum potential. We promote independence and improve the quality of life for youth in a safe and secure environment so each can lead a fulfilling, stimulating life now and as an adult.


HMS Values
Our values form the foundation for everything we do at HMS School. They guide the way we work with our students, families, community and each other. We also use these values as guidelines when we recruit staff, develop them and evaluate their performance. Our four values are:

  • Excellence: We strive to deliver the highest quality education and care, driven by our unique expertise and comprehensive resources
  • Commitment: We dedicate ourselves fully to creating and maintaining a safe, nurturing environment
  • Teamwork: We communicate, collaborate, and support one another in order to achieve our
    common goals
  • Diversity: We value, respect, and embrace each other’s differences

Most people have no conception of what the gift of communication is really worth. But when your teenage child is able to tell you he loves you for the first time, you realize it is priceless.
