The ethos of any institution is reflected in the core values that it internalizes within every aspect of its existence. At Keystone, we believe that the values that we adopt should be universally applicable to all our stakeholders (Keystonians).
“Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles”. This is the foundation upon which all the other values exist. Self-discipline and self-governance, which are key to sustainable adoption of a value system, are impossible without a strong moral framework. Keystonians are held to a high moral standard and are always expected to lead by example, which is the ideal way to demonstrate integrity.
- Freedom with Responsibility
Keystonians cherish the freedom afforded to them in thought, choice and action. It enables them to unshackle their minds, dream big and explore new possibilities. At the same time, they are also cognizant of the inherent responsibilities that accompany the privilege of such freedoms and always temper their thoughts and actions with due regard to the consequences of the same.
- Challenge with Respect
At Keystone, we believe that every entity deserves respect for their contributions, however small or big, to the community. The hallmark of a progressive and tolerant society is not only the diversity of thought that it promotes but also the unequivocal respect for the variety of perspectives that it engenders. Keystonians do not hesitate to question and critique each other but do so with a healthy dose of mutual respect.
A resilient body, mind and character are essential to overcome adversity and to maintain a relentless pursuit of happiness. Keystonians are not afraid of failure and always look to learn and adapt from past experiences.
Keystonians don’t only think with their minds. They are also equipped with the emotional intelligence to perceive and act upon their feelings and those of others around them. It helps them to become better citizens, more effective influencers and ultimately lead a balanced life that contributes to the greater good of the society.
Keystonians recognize the importance of the ties that bind them to their community. They treat their community as a part of their learning environment and are aware of their responsibility to contribute to the betterment of the people and environment around them. They constantly seek out ways to enhance
their learning through activities that go beyond the school.
