Focus is placed on the collective physical, social, emotional, creative, and intellectual development of students.
We celebrate and encourage intellectual ability, creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, health and wellness, character development, and community service by instilling the habits of success in every student. Cultivating a school environment that encourages acceptance, appreciation, respect, and understanding for all citizens of our school and global community is key. As part of this process, students are given many opportunities to share their ideas and academic achievements through public speaking at weekly school community meetings.
