We promote moral growth and personal academic excellence in a setting that fosters a respect for learning, the environment and each other. We celebrate our international and culturally diverse community. We guide and challenge students through balanced elementary and middle school scholastic, athletic, and arts curricula, combining instruction and coaching with a system of personal support.
