• Our Core Values and Community Expectations

    Character.org’s Principles of Effective Character Education states, “Schools that effectively promote good character come to agreement on the core values they wish to instill in their students. The school makes clear that these basic human values transcend religious and cultural differences and express our common humanity.”   The human values that we have committed to instilling in our students at South Middle are:  

    RESILIENCE       |       RESPONSIBILITY       |       INTEGRITY       |       EMPATHY       |       KINDNESS

    Beyond the words above, we must have a common understanding of what it looks and sounds like when students are living the Core Values at school. To assist in this, we have created our Community Expectations (pictured below).
