Our Philosophy

Our children are our most important natural resource and the development of their diverse capabilities; skills, competencies and values are our primary responsibility.

Children are born with different capabilities to learn and grow. Our task is to respect these differences, to encourage their individual expression, and to motivate their continuous growth and development.

Bath Village School is committed to the educational, physical, social, and cultural education of all its students. Our faculty strives to foster the independent roles of democratic citizenship, to encourage the fullest development of our students' mental, physical and social capabilities, and to teach each child to read, write, speak, research, reason, and form conclusions and judgments which will enable him/her to live a happy, healthy and

productive life.

Since our school is not a society unto itself, our faculty and staff must continually foster the cooperation and support of parents, social agencies, and community members if each child is to become all that he or she is capable of becoming.

Bath Village School is committed to the ideal that education is the right of all American children. Our democratic society can neither endure nor effectively function unless each member is encouraged to be an active and informed citizen.
