The philosophy of the Board concerning academic achievement is based on the premise that children have diverse capabilities and interests in individual patterns of growth and learning.

The instructional staff shall develop the means to:

  1. Aid each student in appraising his/her progress in utilization of knowledge in decision making concerning future goals.
  2. Informing parents of the achievement progress of their children, and involving them in the design of learning programs.
  3. Reporting to the Board and the public by utilizing appropriate summa­ries of academic achievement of students.
