Our Commitment to you:
We will get to know each individual child, learning his/her passions, strengths and challenges.
We will encourage children to be active contributors to the community and hold them accountable for their choices.
We will provide opportunities for students to work on difficult tasks and learn academic concepts requiring perseverance in order to succeed.
Bringing real-world experience into the classroom is central to our mission. We are committed to creating a school community where we embrace and empower success across every race, gender, ethnicity, religion, and economic background. As we instill the quality of respect in our students, they learn to listen with an open mind and learn from others who may have different backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints.
As these students begin their educational journey, we blend academic lessons with hands-on activities. We create an environment where they learn traditional educational concepts, but also begin to understand social interactions.
