We aspire to develop children who will become advocates of their own learning and productive citizens. Our vision is to provide an educational environment of the highest caliber, with well-trained and dedicated educators who inspire each student to develop a passion for knowledge and help each learner reach his or her greatest potential.
Our mission is to promote a literate environment that supports our cultural diversity. As a community of lifelong learners, the school will focus on meeting the teaching and learning standards by offering educators the training and resources they require and providing students with an integrated curriculum that allows them to succeed and perform to the best of their ability. Through regular communication, we will create an active and positive partnership among the staff, the parents and the community.
