Pelion Middle School’s Beliefs
Students’ learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school. Students learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process. Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs. The family, school, and community working together are crucial to the development and well being of the student. The success of our community and nation depends upon respect and appreciation for our country, its democratic institutions and our individual differences. Quality education is worth the time, effort, and money. All individuals are accountable for the choices they make and understanding that with each choice comes responsibilities and consequences. Positive attitudes encourage a positive learning environment. Learning is a life-long process that promotes and improves the quality of life and is essential for continuous growth.
