From the Director:

General School Mission

"The Core Knowledge curriculum we use is comprehensive and specific - it raises the bar for both our children and our staff. The program includes math and reading readiness, with activities in science, social studies, art, and motor development. Students receive excellent music instruction and an introduction to computer technology. Kindergartners participate in a full academic program that includes Saxon phonics instruction in combination with quality literature, as well as the components of the Core Knowledge curriculum.
