Expectations for all Donegal High School Students


The following characteristics or qualities are what we are looking for from you on a daily basis. These qualities should be evident in both your work and classroom demeanor. It is only through your personal commitment to strive for these that we can accompish the goals set before us.

 
 
Excellence


Excellence is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, skillful execution and the vision to see obstacles as opportunities.

 
 
Quality


Countless, unseen details are often the only difference between mediocre and magnificent.

 
 
Attitude


Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results.

 
 
Persistence


The power to shape the future is earned through persistence. No other quality is as essential to success. It is the sandpaper that breaks down all resistance and sweeps away all obstacles. It is the ability to move mountains one grain of sand at a time.

 
 
Achievement


Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
