General School Mission

"We will strive to provide the best educational opportunities for your child, from the moment he or she walks through our doors, through their graduation from our program. We will prompt them to learn by enhancing their senses, curiosity, and physical mobility, all in the most ideal environment, thereby creating a high level of skill development and independence. We will strive to focus their natural curiosity to learn while respecting their individuality.
As we employ Montessori, Social/Education ideals, we will help students tap into their greatest strengths and lay a solid foundation for all future learning. Our style includes an emphasis on positive reinforcement and welcoming students to an environment that is challenging, yet free of frustration. Each according to their own gifts and all in the name of helping them to fulfill themselves and the world by their realization of the gift that is learning. "
