Philosophy

Students are encouraged and aided to grow intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. This environment necessitates a variety of learning experiences to meet the needs and individual differences of the student population. It further necessitates that a qualified, dedicated, and flexible staff uses a variety of teaching methods.

In this environment, a varied program of both curricular and extra-curricular offerings provides students with challenges at many levels. The program also recognizes the desirability of a close school-community relationship.

This environment fosters and positively reinforces attitudes and practices that will enable students to emerge as productive citizens who understand their own and others’ freedoms, rights, and obligations as members of a democratic society.

The environment strives to instill within each student an appreciation of the past, a respect for an inquiring mind, and an ability to see that learning extends beyond the school years and is a means of continuous growth.
