Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

" In a cozy and nurturing environment, all age groups are involved in hands-on activities fostering experimentation. Based on a whole child approach, a dedicated group of well-educated teachers use positive reinforcement as key to further the joy and challenge of learning. In a sequential manner, students develop and build a variety of skills as they learn to make their own choices and become more confident in their capabilities." (SOURCE:
