Orlando, FL–One of our most important Life Skills Lessons is the importance of integrity.
What is Integrity?
Integrity is saying and doing what is right. It means living up to your values.
Integrity is saying what you mean, or being honest. Integrity is also meaning what you say. This means when you say something it is the same as what you believe. Some people will say things just because they think that is what other people want to hear but that is the opposite of integrity.
How We Increase Student Integrity
Integrity is doing what is right. It’s when you give back the wallet you found, with all the money in it. Some people will say that you should have kept the money, but you know the right thing was to give the money back. Integrity is also standing up for what you believe is right.
