At Marple Newtown High School, we have identified six pillars of character for our student athletes to strive towards: 

1) Respect – to show admiration, honor and esteem for others

2) Responsibility – accountability and ownership of one’s actions

3) Citizenship – to show loyalty and pride for your community and school, doing good for others

4) Sportsmanship – to play fair, to lose without complaint and to win without gloating

5) Hard Work – is the effort and perseverance you display to reach a goal

6) Integrity – your commitment to be honest, sincere and trustworthy
