Our Values

Our school is an engaging learning community we support the holistic growth of children and educators. Our school is a place where culture, community, and professional knowledge come together.

  • Including all students

    We believe that every child has the right to a bright future. Our flexible learning environment allows for the needs of each child to be considered. We set our benchmarks high and work hard to ensure that every student reaches
    their full potential.

  • Creating a dynamic and experiential learning environment

    Our responsive approach turns the classroom into an interactive object and engages students based on their interests. Our curriculum goes beyond the basics to include specialized programs such as science, arts and physical education. We also offer a wellness program to guide students in their
    choices beyond the classroom.

  • Preparing students for success in life

    We believe success includes academic and life skills. Core traits include: persistence/tenacity, optimism, social intelligence/social integration, curiosity, confidence, leadership, integrity and creativity. For us these skills more accurately prepare children with different aspirations and create the foundation
    for long-term success.

  • Fostering dedicated teachers and mentors

    One of the things we are most proud of at our School is our committed staff. Our school is founded and led by educators who share and support one another. In addition, our school has a number of specialist teachers who are experts in different fields of study. They help shape new curriculum and provide additional assistance to students.
