Day in the Life

General School Mission

" philosophy of education is that every child caries
unseen within him the man he will become in order to develop his physical, intellectual
and spiritual powers to the fullest, he must have freedom, a freedom to be achieved
through order and self-discipline. The world of the child is full of signs and sounds,
which at first appears chaotic. From this chaos, the child must gradually create order
and learn to distinguish among the impressions that assail his senses, slowly but
surely gaining masterly of himself and his environment."
