General School Mission

"The following information will guide you through the learning aspects your child will be introduced to this academic year. In addition to acquiring academic skills, each individual should develop his or her intellectual capabilities to the fullest extent possible.
Therefore, this year we will encourage each student to:
Think creatively
Reason logically
Apply knowledge usefully
Deal with abstract concepts
Solve problems independently
Every individual must learn to live in a society. The center must help each student develop an understanding of people and how the individual depends on others and ofhers on the individual.
This requires each student to gain:
Knowledge of himself or herself and the characteristics, needs, and desires shared with others
Sensitivity to others and their ideas and the ability to act responsibly in various situations
Familiarity with the legal, moral, ethnic, and cultural heritages of his or her own and other societies
Sensitivity to others' inner thoughts and momentum to self-esteem and understanding

"
