Teachers do spend time working with students individually where there is a need.
Each child is of infinite worth, and we respect and celebrate each child's uniqueness and culture.
Our staff of caring, dedicated teachers is committed to providing individualized attention on your child's social, intellectual, emotional, and physical developmental needs at their own rate and level of ability.
Stimulating and creative learning activities help develop self-esteem, curiosity and exploration, and fundamental values - and we provide these in a safe and nurturing Christian environment.

All parents of schoolchildren are members of the Home and School Association. This organization plays an integral part in making the connection complete between home and school. The Home and School Association operates under the direction of volunteer personnel. The benefit from this type of an organization is gained only by cooperation and support by children of the school and their parents. Parents are invited to assist as well as support and participate in the program should they so desire.
