Our school is a welcoming community of learners that engages academically talented students.The school vision has been created over time. The principles are implemented through our instructional practices and our efforts to build a school climate that has high expectations. We feel that it is important to identify the needs of all students, especially those needs that may result in a decreased opportunity to succeed academically if they are not addressed. It is our goal to create a climate that gives students the opportunity to develop a positive outlook on their school experience. In addition, we believe that children learn by doing, using all modalities in a supportive, risk free environment. Through the use of cooperative learning, exploration, multiple exposures, and positive reinforcement, studentswill learn. The staff believes that our role is to be a positive support, a learning guide, a good role model and a unified, consistent teaching team.
