All Wisconsin students demonstrate the knowledge, skills and dispositions of core universal values through a self-sustaining culture encouraged and modeled by teachers and administrators.
Our goal is to ensure greatness to our posterity by raising the profile of goodness as our standard of public behavior and integrity as the touchstone of all social interactions.
