    Character Counts at Port Neches Intermediate

    Responsibility, Respect, Citizenship

    Port Neches Intermediate uses Character Counts, a character education framework that is used nation-wide. Good character is necessary to successfully and honorably meet life’s challenges. The Character Counts approach to character education doesn’t exclude anyone. That’s why the programs is based on the six ethical values that everyone can agree on – values that are not political, religious, or culturally biased. Each six weeks, PNI staff and students focus on one of six pillars of character.
