MISSION (What We Do)

We provide a nurturing learning environment with rigorous core, physical education, and fine arts curricula where our students have multiple opportunities to form positive relationships, embrace diversity, acquire everyday knowledge through hands-on experiences, collaborate and problem-solve with peers, take responsibility for their learning, build leadership skills, and continuously grow academically, socially, creatively, physically, and emotionally.

VISION (What We Want to Become)

We want to produce resilient, life-long learners with growth mindsets who effectively know how to use their unique talents and academic, social, and emotional skills to productively thrive as leaders, innovators, change agents, producers, designers, critical thinkers, and problem solvers in our diverse society.
