Our Mission

2021-2022 Belief Statement
We believe that “College Begins in Pre-kindergarten.” We believe that every student, without exception, without excuses, will be proficient or advanced in reading, writing, and mathematics. We are committed to the academic success of every student in our school. Every student deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them for college if they so choose to attend. We will cultivate our students’ personal character, and include a culture that encourages anti-racism, equity and belonging. We will foster creativity, and collaborative skills through a variety of instructional techniques and multiple platforms. We believe that all students can learn, and it is the school’s job to make this happen.
