PRINCE GEORGE HIGH SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
The overall purpose of Prince George Schools is to prepare students to assume responsible roles as worthy citizens in our rapidly changing social, technological, and economic world. Recognizing that our students have individual differences, special characteristics, and unique needs, we seek to provide an opportunity for maximum development of each student, both as an individual and as a contributing member of our democratic society. We believe that our curriculum must provide intellectual, democratic, moral, social, physical, environmental, and aesthetic values to meet the needs of each individual and to inspire each student to achieve his best.
Academic, vocational, and culturally oriented classes (both at the high school and other related learning centers) plus a broad range of extracurricular activities must meet the needs of and challenge both those who will further their education and those who will enter the changing job market. A desirable balance among class and extracurricular activities must promote student growth and development in cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains.
Within the classroom, we must provide an atmosphere where academic and moral excellence are inspired and where respect for the rights and opinions of others and a sense of integrity and fairness prevail. The instructional program of our school must provide opportunities for each student to develop a sense of dignity, a positive self-concept, self-direction, and skill as a constructive member of a group.
The faculty and staff must continue professional growth based on sound learning theories that have been supported be research. We share a concern for the nature of knowledge and the learning process as they apply to the learners and their total development. We believe that all segments of the school community, including the faculty and staff, school board, parents, a cross section of the student population and lay representatives, should participate in the determination and periodic revision of the philosophy and goals.
We seek to inspire, by example and leadership, the young people for whom we work.
