The Original Building

The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you
to enter the house of his wisdom but rather
leads you to the threshold of your mind.
~Kahlil Gibran

The 1948 Addition

The object of education is to prepare the young
to educate themselves throughout their lives.
~Robert Maynard Hutchin

Gone But Not Forgotten

How many little hands?

How many little feet?

Education would be much more effective if its purpose
was to ensure that by the time they leave school every
boy and girl should know how much they do not know,
and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it.
~William Haley


You can teach a student a lesson for a day;
but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity,
he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
~Clay P. Bedford
