Core Beliefs
 In fulfilling our mission, we will adhere to the following core beliefs:

The ultimate goal of education is to cultivate in each learner a lifelong passion for learning.
Each learner’s academic potential is most fully realized through a challenging and varied multilevel curriculum integrating the latest technologies combined with the appropriate support.
Learners learn best in a respectful, supportive community of trust where each learner’s learning needs and abilities are understood and accommodated as fully as possible.
Intellectual growth requires not only the acquisition of knowledge but also its application in analytical, creative and expressive ways that make learning meaningful to the learner.
Physical and emotional health is critical to the development of each learner’s personal potential.
Each learner’s life is enriched in a diverse community where differences among people are accepted, recognized and celebrated.
The school shares with families the responsibility for fostering in each learner strength of character, a sense of personal responsibility and an attitude of faith, reverence and acceptance of others.
The development of moral leadership in each learner should include instilling a commitment to use one’s knowledge, skills and resources in the service of others within the community in order to promote and foster positive change.
The transformation of teaching institutions into active and cooperative learning environments is vital to ensure quality education.
The schools should serve as hubs for promoting educational, environmental, social and cultural awareness within the community at large.
