Our Philosophy begins with a deep respect for children as unique individuals. We focus upon healthy social and emotional development.

Our Community is a warm and supportive community of students, teachers, and parents. Our students do not get lost in the crowd.

Our Positive Discipline in the Classroom program prepares children for responsible citizenship. Through class meetings we create an atmosphere of caring based on kindness and firmness, dignity and mutual respect.

We know that real learning takes place best in a non-threatening environment. We focus on solutions instead of problems. We consider our mistakes as wonderful opportunities to learn.
