Jr. High school is committed to the basic philosophy of a child-centered
school with emphasis on the academic, physical, intellectual, social,
and emotional development of the whole child. We believe that we
should provide and enkindle a balanced program that puts the child
first and helps each student develop into an informed and responsible
citizen--capable of finding his place in a rapidly changing and
mobile society; alive to the American democratic process; endowed
with the moral dimensions needed to sustain our civilization; capable
of using for enrichment and esthetic fulfillment his increased leisure
time; thereby producing an individual who can enjoy a productive,
useful, and happy life.
this philosophy into actuality, our program is broad in scope and
provides a wide range in rate, timing, and potential for learning
that exists in children.
We see junior
high years as crucial ones in the educational process, the preadolescent
and early adolescent years being fraught with the problems of growing
up and self- identification. Therefore, we seek to instill a sense
of love, self-worth, belonging, and recognition as individuals within
a pleasant atmosphere where school can be an enjoyable experience.
Believing that Boyet students can be the best, our philosophy puts
our students first, while accepting individual differences in each
other so that all students will learn.

adjust our philosophy so that the experience provided for the growth
of the student will truly meet his individual needs.
