SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
Fairview Elementary School:

seeks to provide a learning environment in which each student can acquire feelings of adequacy, an attitude of disciplined self-direction, and skills and knowledge for life-long learning while striving for self-fulfillment.

believes in the dignity and worth of each student in the unlimited potential for growth. The climate of the school should nurture and stimulate the student to search for new meanings in the context of the environment. The student will be provided opportunities in the fine arts to develop creativity and appreciation. To this end, it is believed that the school should assist each student in discovering and extending interest and talents and provide the means and opportunities for their expression.

believes the climate of the school should provide opportunities for each student to explore, to analyze beliefs and feelings, to develop values which influence behavior and to recognize the rights of others. The school community should stress the freedom to inquire, to challenge ideas and to examine alternatives while valuing the freedom of others and the discipline of responsible behavior.

believes the school shares with the family and other agencies of the community the responsibility for the development of the student. When communications among all significant persons in the life of the student is fostered, growth is perpetuated.

believes in the final analysis, all learning is personal; it is the knowledge and values acquired by the individual while interacting in a social setting. To learn to function effectively in the setting, the student must be given opportunities to work independently and to set goals and determine the means to achieve them. The student who has acquired the skills of critical thinking, who exemplifies respect for self and others and who demonstrates the capacity for self-direction and achievement is likely to attain self-fulfillment and to be a contributing member of society.
