1: School Philosophy: To produce a well rounded individual who has developed an appreciation of learning for the sake of knowledge, possesses feelings of self-worth, understands the importance of their responsibilities to family, community and nation, thinks independently and asserts themselves while maintaining a positive, respectful attitude for authority and all forms of life. The individual who possesses these traits will be prepared to exist and interact positively in a world of uncertainties. | 1893— This sturdy, little school was built on its present location most likely by Loyalist shipwrights. The original one room, red and white school is quite possibly the oldest remaining school in use in the Bahamas today.
