ENYFAs Educational Philosophy

A person who summarizes information effectively, provides evidenceto support arguments or claims, and exhibits integrity,has built a strong, successful foundation.

Summarizing is the skill of taking lengthy text or complex information, and reducing it so that it highlights the main points.

Using Evidence in Argument involves offering valid information to support theses, beginning with discussion, then composing into writing across the disciplines, and developing the communication and collaboration skills that support college and career readiness.

Exhibiting integrity demonstrates the ability to leave a place in better shape than at your arrival.

Therefore you must

a. never demand something that you think you deserve

b. always find ways to serve others

c. always do what is right, even when it is painful.
