Our school and program are driven by our CORE Values of Community, Optimism, Respect, and Excellence. These values are grounded in research, the study of successful school models, and belief in the human spirit. Our school’s focus on values will fill the needs of our community. This will be done through our daily language, the books we read, and how adults model our CORE Values. The explicit ways of teaching character will be a unique aspect of our school to ensure we are building holistic adults who have a deep sense of commitment to their fellow man and society. We believe that teaching character will positively impact the community by harboring scholars who want to help their communities, become leaders, and ultimately be change agents in their own communities.
