Today I choose a higher road and a better way,
Always looking to the future.
Today I choose to learn all that I can, because
Every day counts!
By holding myself in mind, body and character to a higher standard than anyone else expects,
I will Earn My Stripes!
We believe that by building self-esteem through Character Education,
Tate students will attain their full potential and face the future
with self-confidence, while promoting lifelong learning and strong
knowledge of the world around them.
