Philosophy on Teaching
We believe that a broad and rigorous curriculum incorporating basic skills with higher order thinking prepares students to be productive citizens in the 21st century. Our amazing teaching staff incorporates real world experiences for students to connect their learning to life outside of school. Grade level teams regularly discuss student progress on formal and informal assessments to ensure that every student is challenged every day. Learning does not stop when the dismissal bell rings, rather it is extended through meaningful after-school enrichment and extension activities and homework that allows for practice and reinforcement of skills that students have learned. Woven throughout the academic program is a school community based on caring and mutual responsibility, promoting the development of self-discipline, kindness and intellectual curiosity.
