All children are capable.
We recognize that all children are born ready to learn. Every child has potential that is waiting to be tapped. We identify educational strategies that provide students with opportunities for success while presenting them with challenges that encourages them to expand and grow a little every day. We have high expectations for our students. Our goal is to support students in achieving their greatest potential.
All Children are special.
We recognize every child as an individual with unique strengths. Individualized instruction ensures that children are supported and their individual differences are used to inform instruction.
All children deserve to be respected.
Positive discipline strategies are used to teach problem solving, social skills, conflict resolution, and self-regulation. Discipline is not used to punish students for making mistakes. Mistakes are opportunities for learning and growing when explored and discussed.
All children enjoy learning.
Learning should be fun no matter what age. Curriculum is always student-led with a focus on child interest. Activities are developmentally appropriate and incorporate play and exploration. Students who enjoy what they are doing not only will learn more, but will go on to develop a life-long love of learning.
