The purpose of the Soper School System is to provide guidance and instruction for each student to become a contributing, self-supporting member of an ever-changing democratic society. Students are encouraged to develop the following attributes
1. An awareness of his or her potential as well as his or her limitations
2. An acceptance of self
3. Confidence in his or her own feelings
4. An acceptance of society
5. The capability to adapt to both his or her own needs and the needs of his or her associates
6. A self-sufficiency vocationally and as a consumer
8. Capability to advance in academic, vocational, and cultural interests.
Ideally, the school climate will provide an environment in which faculty and students can experience mutual acceptance, respect, appreciation, and trust. Teachers and administrators should consider themselves co-workers, supporting each other as they strive to fulfill the educational objectives of the school in an atmosphere which recognizes the rights and dignity of each individual. Considering the maturity of the individual student and the nature of the educational process, the school will provide practice in democratic principles, emphasizing these rights as well as individual responsibility. Such an atmosphere is possible when the student’s needs are central to every decision or activity in the school.
Keeping these individual needs in perspective and with the ultimate goal of student education, the school is flexible enough to utilize new concepts and traditional methods to promote the best learning situation possible for the subject matter and individuals being taught. We recognize that processes to develop the elements of rational thought should be used in every part of the curriculum. At the same time, the teacher is viewed as an organizer of learning activities, a motivator, a resource person who attempts to provide the opportunity for each student to develop his unique abilities and interest at his or her own rate, and a utilizer of the best available instructional methods meaningful to the students.
In a world of change, the most important content is “learning to learn.” Learning to think must be included as a vital part of the curriculum. The basic skills (thinking, reading, writing, listening, and arithmetic) are among the priorities as content in the school. Other aspects of the school content must include socialization skills, understanding of self, responsible conduct, understanding and appreciating the world in which the student lives, and “survival skills.” It is understood that any content selected is merely a vehicle of the achievement of educational goals.
If the school and the students are successful, the student will be able to use effectively their rational powers to make appropriate choices. They will have an awareness and an acceptance of their potentialities and limitations as a functioning, adapting member of society in which they are literate and self-sufficient in their vocation and as a consumer.
