  • It is the responsibility of each student to seize these opportunities and get the best education available from the academics and activities provided.

  • We believe that our students should be taught by the best methods possible in an atmosphere that is conducive to a wholesome teaching-learning situation.
  • An environment should be provided for the children from different social, religious, political, cultural, and economic backgrounds so that the children may come together and develop sound mental and physical health, learn to live satisfactorily with their fellow man, and learn to express themselves clearly and stand for their beliefs.
  • We as faculty members should conduct ourselves in a manner that will command respect and admiration from our students and community.
