CHARACTER EDUCATION

Character education is the school effort to equip students to face the realities of life and make responsible, informed choices--to think creatively and critically, and to act responsibly. This dimension of education focuses on universal values such as Kindness, Generosity, Helpfulness, Honor, Honesty, Truthfulness, Courage, Convictions, Justice, Respect, Freedom, and Equality. Learning to "do the right thing," the next "best thing," is a habit of mind marking true excellence, the plus on the A we want students to earn.
