We believe that students learn when they are engaged, excited, and challenged. Our talented faculty and staff help students develop higher level thinking skills, including the ability to synthesize, differentiate, analyze, hypothesize, and integrate learned information. With inquiring and analytical minds, students learn to utilize these skills to facilitate discussions, engage in debates, and present research-based proposals, as examples of their own learning.
We seek to create a community that is cohesive, caring, and welcoming. We invite parents and families to become part of the decision-making process and activity planning at the school. We keep parents informed about meetings, volunteer opportunities, and other activities through newsletters, internet websites, phone calls, text messages, and school-site parent coordinators. We strive to provide parents with the information, materials, and training needed to help students reach their maximum potential.
