These opportunities are designed to meet the individual needs of our students as we prepare them to become responsible citizens and valued members of our community.

To achieve this we:

Include our families and the community in the educational process.

Provide a challenging and individualized curriculum that encourages creativity and a love of learning.

Promote character-building and problem-solving skills.

Foster our students' feelings of self-esteem and self-worth.

Establish a safe and supportive learning environment, which accepts and respects diversity."
