  • All students are capable of learning and have the right to the same educational opportunities that evolve and change to reflect the world around them.
  • Children will learn to communicate and collaborate effectively, solve problems competently, think critically and creatively, and act responsibly.
  • Children will be engaged in a variety of differentiated instructional strategies and experiences for active participation in the learning process.
  • Children deserve a highly competent faculty and staff that will devleop a culture to meet the needs of students socially, emotionally, and academically.
