Philosophy of Lookeba-Sickles Board of Education

“We believe that every student is entitled to love, security, a feeling of belonging, the respect of his or her teacher and fellow pupils, and dignity as an individual.
We believe that each pupil has a right to succeed at some level, to achieve to the limit of his or her ability, and to take pride in his or her achievements.
We believe that every student deserves to find in each classroom a capable, mature, well-trained, dedicated teacher.
We recognize that the education of children is not the exclusive province of the school but should be a joint effort of the school, the home, and the community.
The goal of our school system is to develop in students high standards of scholastic attainment, moral excellence, and responsible citizenship.
Ideally, every student should graduate with a marketable skill and a foundation upon which further education can be built.”
