Discipline is the training that develops self-control, character, orderliness, and efficiency. It is the key to good conduct and proper consideration for others. The goal of school discipline is the development of the child in these areas.
The focus of discipline is our deep desire to have students learn from their mistakes and to develop an intense commitment to do right. We are training children to live by God's command to love their neighbor as themselves. Our discipline practices encourage children to always give their best effort. We expect them to be God's healing agents in the world they live in.
