Our Values

LIGHT Values:

Learning · Integrity · Good Citizenship · Hard Work · Tolerance

Neighborhood Charter School: Harlem seeks to instill in our children a love of LEARNING, INTEGRITY (honesty, keeping your promise, doing things that promote health, not harm to our body and mind), GOOD CITIZENSHIP (being a responsible member of a community, concern for others, respect for the world, seeing what needs to be done and doing it, peace-making, fairness, sharing, compassion, understanding, forgiveness and loyalty), HARD WORK (perseverance, initiative, optimism, willingness to try something new) and TOLERANCE (open-mindedness, accepting differences, a sense of humor, flexibility). We use the acronym LIGHT as a short-hand for these values and we expect our students to exhibit them at all times.
