Abstract: Character development is important in order to create responsible, successful, compassionate citizens. The Basic School philosophy, which Weber Elementary has adopted, supports educating the child intellectually, socially, and ethically. Core Virtues have been established within Weber to support character education. Research has shown that a strong school community supports an effective character education program. Weber Elementary has established this strong sense of community as a Basic School, however, further development of its character development program may be necessary.
