Recognizing Excellence

  • We believe that positive recognition is a powerful tool for building character, encouraging a quest for excellence and improving self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • The recognition program provides opportunities for students to receive corrective feedback that can assist them in appropriate goal setting.
  • It encourages students to monitor one another’s behavior and to instill a sense of community and accountability with one’s peers.

In addition to the recognition for academic excellence, we also celebrate success in Athletics with annual Athletic Awards.
