Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that every child has the inherent right to an education that will enhance the development of maximum capability, regardless of sex, ethnic origin, economic, social or religious background.

We believe that every child has a right to the tools that facilitate the achievement of personal goals and the fulfillment of obligations to society.

We believe that every individual has certain basic human needs beyond educational needs, which must be addressed, by the school.

We believe that the school must provide an environment in which all students are afforded an equal opportunity to obtain competencies that will help them survive as individuals and as members of society."
