The Sumner School District believes in educating the whole
child. We believe it is our responsibility to develop a student’s
character as much as their intellect, because educating the heart is
just as important as educating the mind. We believe in encouraging our
children to be better each and every day, in each and every way – both
inside the classroom and outside of it.
Research shows that when character skills are intentionally
taught, students demonstrate significant improvements – not only in
their social and emotional skills – but in their attitudes, behavior,
and academic performance.
Sumner School District develops character by focusing on the
whole child. We are committed to helping our students develop all the
skills needed to be successful.
