Our Mission

To establish and maintain a stimulating, challenging and nurturing school environment working in collaboration with parents, we will promote high levels of academic achievement via small group reading instruction, which is skills-based and child-centered. Our children's artistic abilities will be developed by integrating the arts through the curriculum, concentrating on literature-based art, instrumental music, dance and movement. Students will become exposed to different arts organizations and consultants. The learning process will incorporate educational trips as well as having students engage in dialogue among themselves. We will encourage our students to strive for excellence academically and emotionally.
