Kendall-Whittier Core Beliefs

We believe that every attempt should be made to maintain the dignity of both the adult and the student.

We believe that students should be guided and expected to solve the problems they create without making problems for anyone else in the world.

We believe that students should be given the opportunity to make decisions and live with the results, whether the consequences are good or bad.

We believe that misbehavior should be handled with logical/natural consequences instead of punishments whenever possible.

We believe that misbehavior should be viewed as an opportunity for individual problem solving and preparation for the real world as opposed to a personal attack on the school or staff.

We believe that students should have the opportunity to tell their side of the story (due process) when consequences appear to be unfair.
