School Mission

"Ideal" originally penciled in 1875. 

1870 - 1960's  [found in the 1923 view book] 

There is in the school files a copy of the 1875 catalogue, on the margin of which are penciled in the hand of one of the principals the following words:

"The Ideal-to turn out boys that are tireless workers, and that know how to work effectively; that are accurate scholars; that know the finer points of morals, and practice them in their daily living; that are always courteous gentlemen, but without a single trace of snobbery."


1970's - Present 

[revised to be gender neutral and to correct grammar]

"…to turn out young people who are tireless workers and who know how to work effectively; who are accurate scholars, who know the finer points of morals and practice them in their daily living; who are always courteous."
