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 endeavor. FSU seeks employees who share in this quest for truth and commit to living it fully.
