It is the mission of the Guthrie Public Schools to empower all students with the tools necessary to become productive members of society through a cooperative effort between student, home, school, and community.

Prevention is preferable to remediation.
High expectations produce high achievers.
The teaching-learning process is the primary function of this district.
