    District Philosophy Statement

    The philosopy of the Hawthorne Public School District reflects the belief that education encourages the development of a self-directed, aware, and integrated individual who is capable of continued growth toward maximum potential. In addition to an education that stresses lifelong 21st century skills, the Hawthorne School District encourages pupils to think critically and creatively, to appreciate aesthetic experiences, to develop a positive self-image, to respect fellow human beings, and to be prepared for useful participation in society. As an integral part of public education, the curriculum is responsive to the sociological, technological, and civic changes in our ever expanding and evolving global society. 

    The schools and the greater community have the joint responsibility of creating a suitable climate for learning. The schools, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation, offer programs to stimulate all pupils to explore and to exercise fully the capabilities of both mind and body. The community has the responsibility for helping to create and provide the environment and facilities that foster a desire to learn.
