At Alma del Mar, the Five Commitments serve as a set of expectations and values for all scholars and staff. Each week at Town Hall, teachers present Commitment Certificates to scholars who have gone above and beyond in demonstrating one of the commitments that week.
Alma’s Five Commitments are as follows:
Service: I will actively contribute to my school and larger community with a spirit of cooperation, volunteering my time and talents to help others.
Quality: I will do my best work every day and reach for high standards of academic achievement and character.
Integrity: I will be truthful and respect myself and others through my actions and my words.
Accountability: I will take responsibility for my conduct and actions, always striving to hold myself to high standards and encouraging those around me to do the same.
Persistence: I will not give up when faced with challenges. I will ask for help when I need it. I recognize that real learning takes time and effort.
