    NOTES ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF A SUCCESSFUL MIDDLE SCHOOL 
     
     
    We at Tenakill believe that such a philosophy must be based on the unique 
    needs and characteristics of the young adolescent. These needs encompass 
    physical, psychological, intellectual, social, moral and ethical characteristics.
     
    We, as a school community, have developed a mission statement as well as 
    goals and objectives which define who we are and what we are about. Our 
    program is characterized by experiences for students that speak to this 
    community's desire to influence the development of the whole child and with the 
    belief that all children can learn. 
     
    Please take time to learn more about our philosophy and goals by reading the 
    school information in your child's agenda, by attending informational meetings, or 
    by contacting school personnel directly.
