Unique Educational Approach
Our approach is guided by respect for children's individual differences, by recognizing their inherent capacity for growth, and by a commitment to plan activities and environments, which shape learning and provide opportunities for student success.
We provide a wide range of learning opportunities for our students and encourage them to be active participants in their educational plan.
Technology is not simply taught as a "stand alone" class; rather every effort is made to incorporate technology as an information gathering tool into the specific subject area.
Students have the opportunity to excel as individuals and work as members of a team. In their studies and daily lives, our students are encouraged to explore their interests and strengths and to develop their own distinct, individual personalities.
We challenge our students and inspire them to expand their way of thinking. As our students begin to truly believe in themselves and their abilities, they develop the skills to succeed in school and life.
