AMSO Character Education

Character Education is thriving at Amity Middle School in Orange. Our teams integrate character traits, activities, and discussions into the curriculum. Presenters from organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League, Milford Rape Crisis Center, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving work with students on how to contribute to a positive school climate and make good choices.

A core part of AMSO is the Jackie's Nine character education program. The characteristics of Jackie's Nine include:

  • Courage,
  • Integrity,
  • Determination,
  • Citizenship,
  • Commitment,
  • Teamwork,
  • Persistence,
  • Justice, and
  • Excellence

Taking all nine characteristics by which Jackie Robinson lived and tried to instill in others, students participate in pep rallies, learn from speakers on special challenges, and enjoy a BMX Stunt Show among other presentations, videos, and a multitude of other activities that are motivational, inspirational, and fun.
