We believe that the chief purpose of the school is the all-around development of each child as an individual and as a citizen.
We believe that it is our duty as teachers to train pupils, that they may learn to live together peaceably, cooperatively, and efficiently as intelligent individuals in an increasingly changing world.
We believe in a democratically operated school system at all levels. Pupils will learn the democratic way only as they have a chance to share it.
We believe that the school should help develop in its pupils a strong sense of sound American patriotism together with a full understanding of the liberties and responsibilities which come under citizenship.
We believe that community understanding, interest, and cooperation are necessary for the continuing success of any desirable school program.
We believe that good classroom order and a healthy, cooperative working atmosphere are essential to the effective conduct of any class.
