  • is Caring and Safe both emotionally and physically
  • is Positive in climate
  • is Encouraging
  • provides Security for all
  • recognizes everyone's Contributions.

That Mission is grounded in our belief that children will learn best when:

  • they are Active Participants
  • they are raised by "the Village."

That Mission is grounded in our belief that children's learning styles:

  • are based on Varied Modalities
  • require Varied Teaching Methods and Techniques that accommodate the Varied Learning Styles.

That Mission is grounded in our belief that children's motivation is based:

  • on High Expectations
  • on the desire of children to be Challenged
  • on adults' ability to model High Expectations.

That Mission is grounded in our belief that children learn best when:

  • the content of their education is Challenging and Real to the learner and the world.

That Mission is further grounded in our belief that an educator:

  • is one who Facilitates and Manages a safe learning environment
  • in one who Challenges and Encourages the students
  • is a LifeLong Learner
  • is a Positive Role Model
  • will Influence Generations without end.
