    • 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.
