An integral part of the governmental plan, the American school system has no
flavor of charity. lnstead of being a boon of the government to the people, it is a
product of the people, belonging to them for their own and the nation's upbuilding.
The American school system has often been characterized as Uuniquef' The history
of American education began with the history of the country. Schools sprang up with
each new settlement. With the progress of American civilization, the school has le-in
mained a flexible institution, leaving every community free to elaborate its school plans
according to its own intelligence and means.
The ideal of American education is to develop the childs powers of mind on
broad general lines, and in later years to add the necessary special training for trade or
profession. ln so developing the thinlcing of an individual, much has already been done
toward educating American citizens beyond intolerance and rationalization. This is
necessary if democracy is to succeed as a government of, by, and for its people.
American education is organized in such a way that it is pleasant to the student
in the process of learning. Wide varieties of courses malce it possible for the student
to pursue the lcnowledge which will further his abilities in the field for which he is
best suited. Organizations have been instituted in the regular curriculum to provide
specialized participation in. activities which encourage creative ability. Competent spon-
sors guide the activities of the organizations and contribute much to the development
of well-rounded personalities.

than that, there are ample opportunities for service. The attitude of an American
student should be in hannony with the George Rogers Clarlc Creed -
"To the best of our ability we shall endeavor to faithfully serve our school.
Honor and uphold its name.
Strive for high scholarship. citizenship, and sportsmanship."
