We believe that all students should acquire developmentally appropriate writing skills and utilize the writing process across a variety of authentic formats for a diversity of audiences as a valued form of self-expression and communication throughout their lives.
We believe in fostering lifelong language learning through engagement, cultural understanding and open mindedness; in cultivating and nurturing world citizens to move forward in a diversified, global society; in promoting language production in order to encourage world readiness; and in the importance of acquiring functional proficiency at each level in the target languages.
We believe that all students should experience visual and media arts as an essential component of their total development, through which each child can refine their critical thinking skills by creating, presenting, responding, producing, and connecting with art and culture.
We believe music education should provide all students with a love and appreciation for music, an aesthetic form of expression and a standard of excellence achieved through musical performance; an education in music should develop the lifelong learning abilities necessary to contribute to a more cultured, educated society.
We aim to motivate students to maximize their potential through a focus on their academic study, personal values, interpersonal skills and career goals. We want our students to reflect on their education as a successful path that provided multiple opportunities to reach beyond their comfort zone to explore their interests and learn new things.
