General School Mission

"To make learning a pleasant and positive experience
To provide a love of learning; to develop a respect for both the community and its environment
To become responsible and productive members of the community at a young age
To provide a link to the environment; to encourage and inspire exploration, independence and responsibility
To facilitate social development; to develop an understanding of classroom and societal rules
To recognize and respect the needs and interests of each child within a real life atmosphere
To experience and share in the lives of people of all backgrounds; ethnic, racial, religious and socioeconomic
To continue with the same teacher for a three-year cycle which allows for an intimate knowledge of the child, whereby the teacher has time to discover each child's individual strengths and needs.
