St. John’s Character Counts Program: Model Students Praised for Demonstrating Good “Citizenship”


Guam -St. John’s School praised lower school students for their exemplary behavior throughout the month of March by awarding “CHARACTER COUNTS” certificates and acknowledging them in front of their peers, teachers, and parents.

CHARACTER COUNTS is a character education program at St. John’s School that teaches students trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.  Each month, teachers identify students who were exemplary in modeling good behavior, observing and enforcing classroom and school rules, and encouraging fellow students to behave properly.  

One of the ways in which St. John’s School supplements its core curriculum and school-wide learning outcomes is with character education programs.
