Our Philosophy

Our goals are for the students to be open-minded and compassionate; to gain a sense of themselves and others; and to understand and appreciate the diversity of the human spirit. Our students are well trained in the basic academic disciplines, while fulfilling their creative, physicial, emotional, social and cognitive potential. Our students love learning and value knowledge, creativity and humor. They are responsible, critical and caring members of our society. They recognize that they have power and resources to effect change, and the self-esteem and confidence to pursue their goals.
