I myself have done so and have overheard other teachers talking with their students. We also have a guidance program that teaches each class these values.

We have a strict no bullying policy in place that the staff and students are educated on. Each teacher and para works to encourage each student to respect one another.

Pine Butte is a very good school with great teacher to student ratio. The school is very focused on positive interactions, and also encourages parental participation.

Schools are not that great! It's all about who is who. This sport minded town is all about the money and who has the most toys. What's really sad is the elementary school. Should they go to the school and say they are scholastically fit, they are lying. Kids don't even know what a 'Homospaien' is. Huge words confuse all the children, unless you are parent who really sits with their kid at night to help them learn more. As for special services, it's not bad, they do help out kids more. In fact, it seems there are more Special ed teachers than teachers alone. So that tells you something about the community. If your kid doesn't play a sport or is super smart, your child will be basically labeled for trouble as soon as it reaches high school. so beware!

Great technical support! Excellent academics! Good music program, but no separate quality art program. Staff involved and caring. Good communication with home. Professional interaction at all times from staff with parents. Good speech backup, special services.
