Our mission is to prepare and foster the development of the whole child in a safe and nurturing environment while sparking their natural curiosity and their innate love to learn.
With the teacher as their guide and a hands on approach to learning, we aim to cultivate a self-disciplined, self-confident, independent, and academically prepared global citizen who is cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically aware.

My child graduated from SMS. Along with her fond memories, she gained a love of learning, organizational, leadership, and time management skills, as well as a solid academic foundation.
