La Cima's school culture is rooted in 4 C.A.R.E. principles:
C is for community: Together, we are stronger!
A is for accountability: I am responsible for you and for me
R is for reconciliation: I make peace with my words and my actions
E is for effective effort: I learn from my actions and I never give up!
Every member of the La Cima community is expected to demonstrate our principles each day. They are essential to fulfilling our mission and achieving our mission as a school and as an integral part of the Brooklyn community.
