Our Core Values Are the Heart of Our School

Our core values—honesty, kindness, and respect—are modeled through all we do.


When we are honest, we build strength of character.

How we act toward others creates peace of mind and promotes trusting relationships.

Honesty: Relationship-Building in Action



When we are kind, we create the space to enjoy learning.

Kindness is about treating others the way we want to be treated.

Kindness: Value-Modeling in Action




When we are respectful, we value who people are and how they feel.

We listen, stand up to injustice, and have compassion for others.

 Respect: Awareness-Forming in Action
