General School Mission

"As a student-centered, parent-supported independent school that promotes joy in learning, positive character development, and service to others, we live our mission by-
caring passionately about our students and dedicating ourselves to building a vibrant educational community where joy is inherent and where respect is shown for self, others, property, and the environment;
knowing our students as individuals and honoring their academic, cultural, social, ethnic, racial, and religious diversity;
believing that the Montessori approach provides the best foundation for children as they become productive citizens of the world;
instilling in our students a lifelong love of learning and the confidence to tackle new challenges;
teaching our students to think critically and creatively, to express themselves clearly, and to have the courage to act on and defend their convictions; and
affirming that the responsibilities of education are shared by the home and the school.
