We offer an academically challenging and nurturing environment.
Although technically not a neighborhood school, there is a true sense of community within our walls.

This provides numerous opportunities for student/teacher interactions and enables us to focus on the needs of each child in our crusade to provide challenging material that will encourage and nurture an intrinsic love of learning in each of our students.
