An environment that encourages optimum academic progress must also promote high standards of character and behavior. The Warren-Walker School administration, faculty, and staff desire to foster a respect for others and a sense of responsibility in each of our students. To achieve these goals, we have carefully crafted our Character and Leadership Program, using input from experts, respected colleagues, and parents.
Each month we focus on one of our core values or a theme:
September: Friendship / Building a Caring Community
March: Good Judgment
Students are helped to develop these personal qualities through special lessons and assignments, with guidance, daily experience, and discipline – and to demonstrate them in their daily lives.
In the Middle School, our Life Skills program also emphasizes study skills, communication skills, social skills, goal setting and problem solving, and career awareness. A weekly grade-level class is held to provide a venue for class discussions on a variety of topics which are particularly applicable to middle school students.
Honesty requires a lot of courage, respect, responsibility, and good judgment. It is the cornerstone to building a legacy of integrity. It sounds like teaching honesty to children would be difficult, but it is not.
