Within the schools structured and nurturing environment, each student is offered opportunities to develop and practice personal responsibility, accountability, initiative, citizenship, character, honesty, integrity, acceptance and respect for others.
The schools are dedicated to balancing and enhancing each individual’s social, personal, and intellectual growth and to the development of a positive self-concept. The home, school and community will work cooperatively to develop the talents, abilities, and attitudes of each child.The Board of Education recognizes the need to support the schools in their effort to help students develop lifelong capacities to enjoy learning, working, and relating to others.
