We believe that our first responsibility is to our students, our teachers, and our community. We will meet their needs with the highest standards of teaching, great care for our teachers and staff, and affordable tuition rates. Our students are entitled to the highest level of music education available to us, and to the respectful, dignified, and fair treatment by our faculty and staff. Our teachers are entitled to the utmost respect and dignity while performing their teaching duties. We respect our faculty and staff, and  recognize their merit with the sense of security in their job and adequate compensation. Our teaching environment must be clean and safe, and the treatment of our teachers, our students, and their families must be ethical and just. We must maintain in good order the property that we are privileged to use. We are responsible to our community, and our school districts, and must bear our fair share of taxes and treat our environment and natural resources with care.
