At Ithaca City School District, we have set a goal to create and foster a Culture of Love among staff, students, parents, caregivers, and community members.

We define our Culture of Love with the following seven pillars:


Patient - be supportive and restorative


Honest - define reality organizationally and individually


Caring - show encouragement and enthusiasm

Forgiving - release the grip of the grudge

Trusting - place faith in someone

Committed - stick to your values in all circumstances

Selfless - think of yourself less

sharing the culture

We believe that in order for our Culture of Love to be impactful and sustainable, it needs to extend beyond the boundaries of the Ithaca City School District, and into the families and friends throughout the community.


We want to hear stories from you about how you, or people you know, have contributed to a Culture of Love.
