EPIC is founded on the basic premise of the nation's best practices: fundamental principles in anti-bullying, facilitation methodology, the understanding and proper utilization of learning styles and collaborative groups, and the incorporation of a set of success descriptors that become the common language of both the school system and the community which include, respect, responsibility, acceptance, empathy, priorities, integrity, courage, caring and citizenship. The comprehensive approach of involving all those within the school community, including not only the teachers and instructional assistants, but administrators and counselors, school support staff, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and students and parents, is one of its many highlights. Also coming together to complete the EPIC Journey success formula are community members such as law enforcement, juvenile services, and religious and other youth serving organizations.
