These principles provide a strong foundation for learning and include: 1) Strive for academic excellence, 2) Prepare to succeed in a global environment, 3) Provide service to a growing community, 4) Participate in character education, developing a respect for others through exemplary mentorship, and 5) Experience cooperative educational communities in all content areas from fine arts to technology.
