We trust that all human beings possess a powerful drive to learn and grow.
Infants teach themselves to roll over. Babies fall and fall again before eventually walking. Toddlers work endlessly to master the two-footed jump. The drive for learning is inherent, part of human nature. Whether Clearwater students are passionate about performing Shakespeare, mastering soccer, building computers, painting, or monitoring spawning salmon, we make a point of not intruding on their natural drive to learn. We trust that they want to grow, want to thrive, and want to become like the people around them: literate, articulate, and compassionate.
