A Principal believes…..
In the development of healthy minds and bodies and the directing of youthful energy toward expression in clean and wholesome activities.
In the training of our children in those fundamental subjects that are vital in the formation of well-rounded personalities and lives.
In understanding of the importance of the home, neighbors, communities, nations, and races; and the wisdom needed to live in peace with one another.
In the development in young people of an appreciation of art, music, and literature so that leisure hours may be enriched and gifted talents encouraged.
In the realization that each child is an individual having unique abilities, gifts and skills; to nurture each child’s creativity and talents; to encourage each child to interact caringly with teachers and fellow students; to stress idealism, devotion, and service to others by introducing our children to heroes from the past and present day, so as to encourage the development of good character.
