    • the ability to navigate and engage in a 21st century global society that is more inclusive, interconnected, and multilingual;
    • strong interpersonal skills and the ability to positively influence and collaborate with others;
    • the freedom, confidence, and ability to express their unique selves; '
    • and our graduates will see themselves as filled with purpose and value.

    Core Values: Known as "T.I.G.E.R. Style," our core values reflect a universal code of ethics along with the character traits necessary for student academic success and positive social-emotional growth. The values form the word "tiger" and represent the following acronym:

    • TEAMWORK: All means all, by all means necessary.
