Philosophy of Education

Believing that education is both a right and a privilege for the youth of our community, the Board
further believes that the educational program of our schools should be designed to help each student:


  1. Master fundamental skills and knowledge needed and desired.

  2. Gain an appreciation of learning as a search for truth and as an opportunity for personal fulfillment.

  3. Develop good work habits and critical evaluation.

  4. Become a loyal, enlightened citizen through the daily practice of democratic principles.

  5. Recognize and prefer wise and just leadership.

  6. Appreciate the fact that discipline is the price of freedom.

  7. Prepare for employment or for higher levels of learning.

  8. Develop individual potential so far as possible.

  9. Develop good physical and mental health.

  10. Be able to understand, live, and strengthen American heritage.

  11. Understand and appreciate the physical universe, the natural laws which govern it, and the scientific method of problem solving.

  12. Develop an appreciation of the good and beautiful as expressed in the fine arts.

  13. Learn that "getting along" with other people is a fundamental prerequisite for a full life.

  14. Develop moral and ethical character.
