Our key values are unchanged as we retain our independence, developing meaningful relationships, implementing sustainability, allowing time for play and for quality in work, integration in learning and curriculum, embracing diversity, access and equity, democratic governance and small-scale operations. Respect for self and others is paramount and takes time to develop. Freedom and responsibility are entwined, for in accepting our responsibilities there lies freedom.

We assist students to understand the parameters. Korowal acitively promotes and demonstrates the values of compassion, tolerance, equity, respect, empathy, gratitude, commitment, resilience, and critical thinking.
