We hold all students to their highest level of social development and academic achievement, and strive to engage each student through culturally responsive teaching. Students are engaged using the Creative Curriculum, with a balanced approach to literacy, hands-on exploration of math, and classrooms organized by special interest areas. We put strong emphasis on fine and gross motor development, oral communication and social-emotional learning.
