School Philosophy/SLE

HFCS students are the future leaders of society and will assume a role in establishing a more just and peaceful world. Therefore, we strive to develop in each child a positive and well-balanced self-image. We encourage each child to become a lifelong learner and to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and values in order to live cooperatively and responsibly in this world.
The Student Learning Expectations reflect the school's philosophy and goals. They are infused in the development of lessons and are focal points in daily teaching.
