Our staff is committed to ensuring a safe, caring, inclusive, and challenging environment in which your children will be actively engaged in, and taking ownership of, their own learning. We are also committed to challenging ourselves to model a growth mindset that we wish to instill in all members of our school community. We want our students to recognize that it is their effort, perseverance, and willingness to seek out learning opportunities that will determine their academic and social success. In addition, we will help students to respect themselves and others, to understand and appreciate differences, and to hold themselves to high standards through our STAR values.
