  • Every child has a right to the best education possible.

  • All children will learn to be learners and want to learn.
  • Everyone can learn.
  • Education of our children is a total community responsibility.
  • We believe in the value of life, respect for all, trust in one another, self-worth, and self-discipline.
  • Change is necessary to progress.
  • We must embrace our strengths and overcome our weaknesses.
  • Everyone is unique.
  • Self-respect generates self-improvement.
  • A positive, safe, and orderly environment is conducive to learning.
  • Educational personnel and parents are role models - they should be good role models.
  • Discipline should be firm, fair, and consistent.
  • The school must be an agent that will make the world a better place.
  • Discipline need not be perceived as a tool of deprivation in terms of self-worth, but as a facilitator in the development of pride in each student.
