We seek to create a stimulating learning experience for our students, recognizing the various developmental stages of children as they grow.
Working in partnership with the family, Shore encourages academic, personal, creative, and physical development consistent with each child's potential.
Faculty members are committed to establishing teaching styles which allow students to become critical thinkers who possess self-confidence and personal integrity.
