Code of the Green Knights


A committee of PAAHS students and teachers spent the 2016.2017 school year developing the Code of the Green Knights. This Code is the foundation of our Character Education Program grounded in the principles of universality (Would you want all persons to act this way in a similar situation? ) and reversibility (Would you want to be treated this way? ).

The four core ethical values decided upon by the committee are: Protect Integrity, Accept Challenges, Honor Diversity, and Salute Kindness. In schools of character, adults embrace their critical role as models. Teachers work together as professionals along with parents and community members as partners to positively shape the social, emotional, and character development of the young people entrusted to them each day. Students in these schools feel safe, respected, and connected to those around them, allowing them to thrive academically and socially and be motivated to give back to their communities.

Our mission is to instill these character traits into the culture and climate of our school so everyone can be more self-aware, resilient, and respectful of themselves and others.
