Character Education


We teach more than academics. Our Commit to Character program nurtures universal character traits that transcend racial, religious, socio-economic and cultural lines.

Our entire school works together to create a community that is welcoming and inclusive. The 10 character traits below are modeled, taught, expected, celebrated and practiced in our everyday actions.
