Character Education is Our Shared Responsibility 

Character education is a learning process that enables students and adults in a school community to understand, care about and act on core ethical values such as respect, justice, civic virtue and citizenship, and responsibility for self and others. Upon such core values, we form the attitudes and actions that are the hallmark of safe, healthy, and informed communities that serve as the foundation of our society.

Character words were developed by our Strategic Planning Committee to align with our Profile of a Graduate (un graduado de Yakima).
