    Core Beliefs
    All learners have the right to develop their gifts and talents. All learners benefit from project-based learning that fosters creativity and innovation. All learners deserve enrichment opportunities that stimulate intellectual, physical, and creative growth. All stakeholders (learners, staff, parents,and community members) play a vital role in the success of our school and thrive in a culture of mutual respect.
