Wheaton R-III District Philosophy

Recognizing each student as a unique individual, we believe that education should provide an
opportunity for the maximum development of each individual within the limitations of his/her
capacities. We believe that education must help the student realize his/her worth as an individual and
should lead him/her toward becoming a productive member of society. Strong emphasis must be placed
upon democratic values, which are important for an effective and satisfying personal and social life. We
believe that the teacher, the parent/guardian, and the student must have all definite responsibilities in the
educational program of the community. We believe it is the responsibility of the Wheaton R-III School
District to provide an educational environment for the children of the district, which will foster and
accelerate their intellectual, physical, social and career development.
