LOVE AND LOGIC SCHOOL

West Hills Christian School has adopted the Love and Logic philosophy. In an effort to help our students understand the importance of Biblical principles and how they relate to their choices we developed the “The Knights’ Code.”   This code is based on five Biblical principles: These principles are used by our faculty and staff to direct students to positive and helpful choices.

Knight’s Code

  • Responsibility:

“If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer” Proverbs 9:12 (NLT),

  • Respect:

Yes indeed, it is good when you obey the royal law as found in the Scriptures: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  But if you favor some people over others, you are committing a sin. You are guilty of breaking the law.” James 2:8-9 (NLT),

  • Honesty:

Truthful words stand the test of time, but lies are soon exposed”  Proverbs 12:19 (NLT),

  • Safety:

Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe” Proverbs 28:26 (NLT)

  • Kindness:

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.” Galatians 6:2-3 (NLT)
