We encourage the development of knowledge, independence, responsibility and respect to nurture lifelong leaders. Today we learn...Tomorrow we lead.
Teachers use a balanced literacy approach to reading, which targets the most powerful and strongest components of reading and writing. In math, lessons are drawn from the enVision Math Program, which uses problem-based instruction. Engaging in interactive experiments in science, learning about communities in social studies, and planning the solution to an engineering problem in STEAM are just some the ways that we prepare students for college and careers in all subject areas.
