The East Lyme High School faculty and staff respect the integrity of each student. We acknowledge the uniqueness of individual needs, capabilities and perspectives. We challenge all students to hold high expectations for their learning, moral values and physical well-being. Equally compelling is our belief that students should make responsible decisions, be proud of their achievements, and accept the ramifications of their actions.
Providing a safe learning environment that addresses the needs, expands the abilities and encourages the aspirations of all students is paramount. By presenting diversified and flexible curricula, this school offers multiple opportunities for all students to obtain a comprehensive education. We are committed to providing the tools and inspiration necessary for our students to become life-long learners.
It is our conviction that education is a dynamic process. Therefore, our students prepare for the future not merely by acquiring knowledge but by creating their own learning opportunities, realizing their aptitudes, and attaining their goals. Our culture of trust fosters self-confidence and responsibility, thus inspiring students to be intrinsically motivated.
East Lyme High School recognizes the value of diversity and the universality of human experience. We ask students to examine their own beliefs and those of others in order to develop a sense of global awareness and responsibility, thereby promoting an acceptance of and respect for every member of society. By advocating participation, service, and leadership, we encourage exemplary citizenship in our students.
