Character Education is an instructional approach that is used to enhance learning and make school more meaningful for students. Today, the vast majority of Americans share a respect for fundamental traits of character: honesty, compassion, justice, courage, and perseverance. Yet, in today's world, all children face great uncertainties in a complex and sometimes troubled society. These traits are not always readily apparent and easy to grasp or learn. Therefore our challenge is to provide youth with the self-esteem, stamina, and support they need to survive, be successful, and develop into strong, competent, caring, and responsible citizens.
With input from the Pemberton students, staff, and community, our core values were formalized in 2016. The core values will be taught through monthly lessons and are as follows: SERVICE, PERSEVERANCE, INTEGRITY, RESPECT, and RESPONSIBILITY.
