Student Council

The mission of the Downtown School Student Council is to build responsible student leaders within our school community and promote the values that represent exceptional character in all students.

We will accomplish this mission through:

  • Leading by example in our classrooms and community by just being respectful, responsible, and safe.
  • Helping others in our community by engaging in volunteer work .
  • Engaging our friends and classmates in their education and encouraging positive peer relations.
  • Serving as a source of communication between the students and faculty of the school.
