Our neighborhood school is a collaborative community of active thinkers who are preparing leaders of the 21st century. Our commitment to a child-centered, engaging education ensures that every student is encouraged to achieve high academic standards, meet and exceed their own personal goals and realize social success. We achieve this goal by providing our diverse student body with the strategies to take responsibility for their learning by continuously engaging them in rigorous and creative learning experiences.

Our students sustain a sense of curiosity that is met by incorporating the community into our school to provide authentic learning experiences. We share a belief that each member of the community brings a unique set of talents and skills and this belief is celebrated by providing all children the opportunity to excel by applying best practices in teaching, skillful planning, and providing a supportive and challenging inquiry based curriculum. Our students will emerge from our school active learners and positive members of the community.
