Located in Ehrenberg/Quartzsite, La Paz County, Arizona, our campus school district is the center of this peaceful, involved community, which we believe is the key to fostering a safe learning environment for our kindergarten through eighth-grade students.
We are a Character Counts! School. The "Character Counts!" program is endorsed by the Aguila Elementary School District and the Governor's office and is used by many schools nationwide. The Six Pillars of "Character Counts!" are core ethical values that are not religiously, politically, racially, or ethnically based or biased.
The six pillars of character are:
A person of character lives with integrity; is honest, reliable, and loyal; keeps promises, has moral courage to stand up for what is right even when it is hard to do; and does not cheat, steal, or lie.
A person of character values all persons; respects the dignity, privacy, and freedom of others; is courteous and polite to all; is tolerant and accepting of differences; and does not resort to insults or bad language.
A person of character meets the demands of duty; is accountable; pursues excellence; practices self- control; and does not give up easily, especially when others are counting on him or her.
A person of character is fair, just, and impartial; plays by the rules; and is open to different viewpoints; does not seek to lay blame; and does not take advantage of others.
A person of character is caring, compassionate, kind, loving, forgiving, and considerate; thinks about how his or her behavior affects others; and does a good deed without thought of reward.
A person of character is a good citizen, does his or her share, volunteers in the community, is a good neighbor, and respects just laws.
