General School Mission

" We believe that the education of your child should be the cooperative responsibility of his/her home and school. By working closely with you, we will provide the consistency needed to develop security and independence in your child. We strive to provide a nurturing, stimulating atmosphere in which your child will grow emotionally, socially, physically and creatively, as well as academically. Your child is in the process of creating the adult he/she will become. Our program is devoted to encouraging the self-esteem, self-confidence and self-motivation, which are necessary for this growth
