  1. expansion of academic attainments and intellectual skills;

     

  2. stimulation of intellectual curiosity, independence, and responsibility;

     

  3. development of originality and creativity;

     

  4. development of positive attitude toward self and others;

     

  5. development of desirable social and leadership skills;

     

  6. career exploration and awareness.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines which shall include those for valid identification, curriculum development and implementation, and assessment of the learning outcomes.
