School Mission

Our mission is to create an academic partnership with families of our school community. With a foundation built upon literacy and the arts, our goal is to educate the whole child. We will maintain a caring and creative school that sets high expectations, encourages deep thinking, and engages all students in a rigorous learning environment that meets their individual needs.

As a new school that opened in September 2013, we are proud to offer that "small school" feel. Our goal is to create small learning communities within our new school building. 

Instructional Philosophy


Our instructional philosophy is built upon the belief that literacy is the life blood of education. In every subject and every unit, there will be a strong emphasis on both reading and writing fluency. Our goal is to foster intrinsic habits that create lifelong learners. We also strongly believe that arts & sciences enrichment activities enhance the  learning experience in a profound manner and should be taken beyond the walls of the classroom. To address the needs of the whole child, we empower our staff, students and families to become partners and take ownership of their learning process. By providing the necessary supports, students will set their own goals, regulate and reflect upon their educational journey and develop strategies to navigate through individual roadblocks.
