School Culture

Our Core Values

We believe that:
The Character Counts Pillars of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship are essential qualities to model and instill in our students.
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People are the foundation for developing leaders.

All individuals are valuable and can make meaningful contributions.

A caring and compassionate learning environment will support the needs of the whole child and inspire all to reach their full potential.
Leaders are life-long learners.

The Seven Habits of Healthy Kids

  1. Be Proactive – I am in charge!
  2. Begin with the end in mind–Have a plan!
  3. Put first things first–Work first, then play!
  4. Think win/win –There’s plenty for all!
  5. Seek first to understand, then to be understood – Listen before you speak!
  6. Synergize – Together is better!
  7. Sharpen the saw – Balance feels best!
    BONUS:
  8. Find your voice, and inspire others to find theirs – I’m on a mission!
