"Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones." -Phillips Brooks

Program's Philosophy 

The goal of character education in the Mendham Borough Schools is to foster the development of caring, responsible, and knowledgeable students who will make good choices and who will contribute constructively to their school community, their families, and the community at large. Throughout the curriculum and in classroom, school wide, and family activities, students will experience elements of character development that can be integrated in their daily activities and dealings with others. This will prepare them to become productive, responsible citizens.
