Circle of Excellence

  • The motto of the Circle of Excellence, “Primus inter pares,” means “First among equals.”  By their attitude and their achievement, members of the Circle reach that pinnacle.

  • THE LAKEWOOD CIRCLE OF EXCELLENCE is an honorary which recognizes students who demonstrate a positive attitude toward learning and a willingness to work hard to achieve excellence.   The honorary is called the Circle of Excellence for two reasons.  First, the word “Circle” signifies that members are bound together by a common tie—that of excellence.  “Circle” also suggests equality among the members.  All are chosen because of their positive attitude and their outstanding achievement in a particular discipline.  Each earns honor.
