The Elisabeth Morrow School’s shared purpose is to provide exemplary academics and character development in a diverse and inclusive child-centered community, inspiring students to become curious scholars, ethical leaders, and global citizens.
In a child-centered environment, EMS cares deeply about...
- Character Development
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Passion for Learning
The 4 C's follow the stages of a child's personal character development. The day begins with a simple act of courtesy - a handshake between a student and a teacher or administrator. This sets the tone for the consideration that will be shown in the classrooms, hallways and playgrounds. As the child grows, courtesy and consideration make possible the cooperation necessary for advanced learning. And finally, a child who truly embraces courtesy, consideration and cooperation becomes a young adult prepared to live a life of compassion.
