PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
The primary responsibility of South Newton High School is to obtain and use the resources available for the greatest benefit to facilitate the education of the student. This environment will provide the youth of the South Newton School Corporation with the opportunity to become responsible citizens. The program will also offer each student the opportunity to develop the necessary life and academic skills to enable him/her to select and to pursue realistic personal and career goals.
The school staff will assist students in gaining mastery of the fundamental tools for learning so that the student will apply these skills to life-long learning, develop an appreciation of the American way of life, incorporate moral and ethical values, to recognize the inherent worth of mankind, develop respect for people of all races and nationalities, and cultivate an attitude which will enable the student to reconcile individual interests with the common good.
Another responsibility of the South Newton High School is to attempt to address the individual and collective needs of the members of our community, regardless of age, sex, race, ability or handicap, to prepare for and/or adapt to a world of rapid change and unforeseeable demands.
