The school believes this mission can best be realized in a diverse community that embraces a broad range of cultural perspectives.

Our school bases its actions on kindness, honesty and respect for self and others, and an appreciation of our differences.
Adults and children alike accept responsibility to live these values daily through their words and deeds.
