Our founding motto, "Live to the Truth", was said at the end of
each class by beloved first principal, Cyrus Peirce, who sought to
discover and teach "the truth" - "truth in theory and
principle,...truth in spirit and motive,...truth in manner and
form,...truth intellectual and truth moral." Principal Bagnall
found this motto "speaks of sincerity of spirit,...of intensity of
effort, of resolution to succeed, of joy in achievement." "Live to
the Truth" continues to guide our institution in practice and
