  1. Master fundamental skills and knowledge needed and desired.

  2. Gain an appreciation of learning as a search for truth and as an opportunity for personal fulfillment.

  3. Develop good work habits and critical evaluation.

  4. Become a loyal, enlightened citizen through the daily practice of democratic principles.

  5. Recognize and prefer wise and just leadership.

  6. Appreciate the fact that discipline is the price of freedom.

  7. Prepare for employment or for higher levels of learning.

  8. Develop individual potential so far as possible.

  9. Develop good physical and mental health.

  10. Be able to understand, live, and strengthen American heritage.

  11. Understand and appreciate the physical universe, the natural laws which govern it, and the scientific method of problem solving.

  12. Develop an appreciation of the good and beautiful as expressed in the fine arts.
