The PBL Creed

I believe education is the right of every person.

I believe the future depends on mutual understanding and cooperation among institutions, as well as people around the world. I agree to do my utmost to bring about understanding and cooperation among all these groups.

I believe every person should prepare for a useful occupation and carry on that occupation in a manner that brings the greatest good to the greatest number.

I believe every person should actively work toward improving social, political, community and family life.

I believe every person has the right to earn a living at a useful occupation and that right should not be denied because of race, color, creed, sex, or handicap.

I believe every person should take responsibility for carrying out tasks in a manner that brings credit to self, associates, school, and community.

I believe I have the responsibility to work efficiently and to think clearly. I promise to use my abilities to make the world a better place for everyone.
