Character Education

At East Woods, our character education program is focused on the ideal of teaching and sustaining a community of kindness. We prioritize the importance of having respect for self and others, and the responsibility of giving back to local and global communities.
Character education is a priority at East Woods. This is reflected in the Mission Statement: “...fostering strength of character.” The Vision Statement also echoes this commitment to character education: “Graduates will emerge from East Woods prepared to be contributing citizens and compassionate leaders in a complex and changing world.”
Character education at East Woods is both modeled and taught. The partnership between teachers, parents, students, and community members working together helps to support positive character development for all students.
