“If it’s not right, do not do it; if it’s not true, do not say it.” – Marcus Aurelius

Our Seven Stars are structured to help students develop themselves as individuals in a world that can ask a lot from us. At Seven Stars, we encourage all students and staff to strive to do the best for the community, leaving no one out, including ourselves. Integrity helps us follow that agreement as much as we can.

Is integrity the soft skill of true leaders?
To have integrity is to be true to yourself, to embody your values, and to encourage others to embody their own. It is to do what you know is right, even when it is hard to do. Having integrity means not backing down and putting forth the effort to be the best we can be. It means not letting yourself down by giving up on yourself.

In practice, this could look like staff answering students’ questions about activities or behaviors, or providing positive reinforcement when a student or fellow staff shows kindness to themselves and others. We focus on strategic development of positive characteristics to build confidence and success.

We always encourage positive reinforcement when students…

  • Exemplify honesty and transparency
  • Choose accountability and responsibility
  • Show trustworthiness and dependability
  • Practice patience and adaptability in the face of unforeseen challenges
  • Support others while maintaining their well-being
  • Treat themselves and others with respect
  • Show appreciation towards others

Soft skills like flexibility, social skills, and integrity are essential in our daily lives. We don’t expect our students to get things right every time, and our experienced staff provides reliable support when our students encounter the inevitable obstacles.

Practice makes progress!
