We are a dynamic learning community that is characterized by academic excellence, the building of responsible student behavior and strong partnerships with families. Students are both challenged and nurtured to develop their own learning strengths and they are constantly encouraged to take on leadership roles within the classroom and school at large.
Teachers, support staff and administration recognize the importance of ongoing focused professional development to ensure that all students receive quality instruction in all areas of their learning. Our goal is to build a learning community committed to professional development that supports the best educational practice. Our central purpose is always student achievement.
Our learning community is strengthened through our partnerships with parents. Parents know their children the best and are able to support their child’s learning through clear communication with the teacher and by assisting with homework, home reading, and project work. The school has an open-door policy with parents and also offers many volunteer opportunities within the classroom or school. Parents, teachers, and administration always conduct themselves in a mutually respectful manner.
