Values-Based Education

Each year, we promote values education where we teach up to 22 values that deepen our children’s understanding. We achieve this through our very own Goal Squad comprised of eight characters at the core of our curriculum. Our eight core values are curiosity, adaptability, resilience, morality, thoughtfulness, cooperation, communication and respect. We believe these to be at the center of everything we represent and deliver.

Community

We strive for a neighborhood school vibe in the heart of a big city. We run year-round programming to support the diverse households that make up our school. Our parents are engaged in everything from our daily curriculum by chaperoning field trips to designing and painting sets for the school musical. We welcome and embrace parent engagement.
