Every student receives individualized instruction. Our teachers and staff touch the lives of our students by nurturing their thirst for knowledge and challenging them to exceed even their own expectations. Our small teacher/student ratio enables teachers to give our students personal attention and enables each one to reach his or her full potential. It’s a hands-on, personal approach that assures a rich learning environment.
A reading specialist, speech clinician, guidance counselor and school psychologist are also available to students who may require their help. This includes gifted students who would benefit from extra guidance to reach their full potential.
And our commitment to excellence in teaching is passed down to our students. A monthly “buddying” program helps to build a stronger school community by letting older students experience the satisfaction that comes from mentoring.
