CORE VALUES AND BELIEFS
The primary concern of Reading Memorial High School is the preparation of students to be literate, skilled, creative, healthy, competent and informed citizens-appreciative of the arts; capable of critical thinking and problem-solving; and able to function intellectually, emotionally and physically within a complex, interdependent and pluralistic world.
We believe that a good learning community should be one that is safe, caring, consistent, fair, flexible, open and democratic. that meets the needs of all students through educational programs that promote individual fulfillment in a variety of ways as well as encompasses the complex interdependency of the world and the community. that achieves educational excellence in an environment which promotes the free and open exchange of ideas; encourages mutual respect, creative expression and problem-solving skills; fosters human dignity; and recognizes and respects racial, ethnic, cultural and sexual differences. that promotes individuality; nurtures self-esteem, health and well-being; and encourages participation in a democratic society.
We believe that the education of our young people is the shared responsibility of the school, student, family and community.
