Character Development

Lower School Character Development

The lower school teaches children compassion for others as well as appreciation of differences among people; a high value is placed on character education and multicultural understanding. Daily discussions revolve around the following character traits: respect, self-discipline, responsibility, acceptance, cooperation, generosity, caring, perseverance, courage, compassion, empathy, honesty, forgiveness, integrity, gratitude, and joy. Through careful attention to the whole child, the faculty and staff strive to produce academically well-prepared graduates who are thoughtful, motivated, productive, and self-confident young people.
