Dartmoor demonstrates its commitment to student respect by adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Instruction should take place at a student’s instructional level
  • Instruction should accommodate a student’s learning style
  • Students should feel safe and respected
  • Staff should encourage students to be responsible
  • Staff should teach students to think globally and champion diversity
  • Staff should demonstrate sincere concern for students
  • Staff should nurture every student’s self-concept and potential
