Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe every child is gifted. Our challenge is to help discover and cultivate each child's unique talents by creating and promoting an environment that is emotionally secure, academically challenging and culturally stimulating. We are committed to teaching with patience, compassion and understanding, and we value the commonalities and differences each student brings to our classrooms.

We encourage the pursuit of excellence in all areas and recognize our role in nurturing the whole person. By inviting and encouraging the participation of each parent and the community, we implement these ideals with vision, passion and dedication.
