Seven Traditional Ojibwe Values/Teachings
Love, Humility, Respect, Bravery, Honesty, Truth, Wisdom
Our school is founded on leadership principles; hence the traditional value system of the Anishinabe 7 Teachings is a natural fit for student, staff, and families. The 7 Grandfathers can be addressed in all aspects in and out of school and across all academic disciplines. Each classroom will implement an expectation plan using the Mishomis Teaching as a guide.
