School Mission

Our school mission is to nurture a community of intellectuals to prepare young people to make a difference in their lives and in the world.

School Directions

Our school has a strong emphasis on individual student achievement. This includes competence in core subjects as well as in physical education and the fine arts. In addition, creativity, innovation, global citizenship and environmental stewardship provide the impetus for development of the whole child. Importance is placed on preparing students for their future in an increasingly digitally connected global environment. The School Development and Renewal Plan focuses on two student outcomes: personalization of learning and the development of positive virtues in all students, thereby contributing to responsible citizenship.
