Core Values

At Union School, we develop civic engagement based on the following core values:

  • Honesty - Personal honor and dignity, which promotes social well-being. An honest person does the right thing in the right way without cutting corners.
  • Responsibility - The ability to tell right from wrong and to make reliable, trustworthy decisions based upon that knowledge.
  • Courage - The strength to make a decision for yourself and stand up for what is right. Courageous people stand up for those who are oppressed and against injustice and peer pressure.
  • Empathy - The ability to put oneself in someone else's place in order to better understand the other person; having perspective.
  • Respect - The ability to feel or show esteem for, to honor.

Throughout the school year, we organize activities that specifically aim to develop and strengthen the core values listed above.
