The major goal of our plan is to set clear expectations that will help students make better choices and
to provide a positive learning environment for all students. We ask for your cooperation in
helping us to help all students accept responsibility for their actions and develop self-discipline.
We live the FISH! Philosophy daily at Chahta-Ima. Chahta-Ima is also a CHAMPs school.
CHAMPs is a structure for setting clear expectations for students in various environments.
