We strive on the formation of values in our students from the good example and role models that start from the adults of our community (parents, teachers, administrators and support staff) for the internalization of universal ethical values that are based on Seven Pillars of Character.
Each of these pillars has characteristics or attributes that allow us to understand what is expected from people when acting in accordance with each of them. These attributes are values and critical thinking elements, that shape each pillar and provide students with skills when making decisions, regarding their actions and being creators and/or responsible for their consequences (which can be positive or negative).
Good character does not simply mean being nice or calm; It means “having the strength to always do the right thing, particularly when no one is looking.”
Starting from the Character Counts program we articulate 3 objectives:·
- Instill basic educational and behavioral values, that enhance the learning environment and enable students to reach their full intellectual potential.
- Develop fundamental social and emotional skills for daily life, which help them to be successful and socially responsible people.
- Develop positive character attributes for critical thinking decision making.
