Our Philosophy

We are dedicated to promoting an enjoyable and challenging environment for our students that is conducive to an interdisciplinary-based educational experience. We utilize modern and progressive teaching methods, combining kinesthetic, auditory and visual learning to stimulate and inspire our students’ creativity and to optimize their learning potential. Our curriculum is administered in a way that allows an authentic, student-centered process that promotes and supports individuality, creativity and challenge. A child’s increased capacity to learn and create in a unique and personal manner will foster a greater appreciation and understanding of his/her role in the surrounding world.
