Small schools provide a uniquely individual educational experience.
The learner's limits and potential are the driving force behind the curriculum offerings.
The interests of the student body provide the emphasis.
The needs of the classroom community turn into the strengths.
The non-sectarian format allows for not simply a tolerance of differences but rather a celebration.
Our students are encouraged to look at a larger frame and we can do that because we are a small school.
