Educational Philosophy

Tipton Academy represents “team spirit” and “positive partnerships” with students and families, all school staff and members of the community.

The teaching staff is keenly aware that they must be positive role models and caring instructors and exhibit characteristics such as integrity, creativity, loyalty, responsibility, honesty, and intelligence that are valued by all stakeholders.

In addition, it is very important that both the teacher and the parent communicate regularly regarding their children.  Both should be open and responsive to one another’s suggestions and concerns.
