Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"That every child has a strong natural desire to learn, and the right to exercise that desire.
That this desire must be supported by introducing the child to a proper study technology and encouragement of good study habits.
That each student should build a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding of his current studies before proceeding to the next level.
That the child's desire to learn must not be suppressed or smothered by incompetent teaching, a distractive study atmosphere, or duress.
That each child is a unique individual and should be able to proceed at a pace suited to his or her own abilities, talents, and interests.
That each child needs to develop the ability to observe, think, and express his or her thoughts clearly.
That it is the school's responsibility to observe, measure, and recognize students' achievements, and maintain a positive environment for learning.
That proper education includes learning and practicing respect and responsibility for the rights and needs of others.
That the school should be a contributing member of the community, and that students and teachers should undertake projects that are of service to the community.
That the school should support a diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, personalities, and ideas, while maintaining the rules and requirements appropriate to achieving the objectives outlined above.
