One of our main goals is to inspire a love for learning within our students. Our teachers role model an enthusiasm for learning on a daily basis. We help our students develop a sense of value and self-respect by experiencing a sense of satisfaction for a job well-done. We recognize that there is more than one way to learn, so we work to find what resonates with each student and offer a variety of learning techniques in our classrooms. We abide by the fact that if we don't provide a fun, learning environment, our students will find other ways to amuse themselves, so we work to "entertain" them through learning.
We are big believers in small classes, so we limit each class to ten students. Our small student-to-teacher ratio benefits everyone:
* Students talk and participate more in class.
* Teachers have ample time to give every student individual attention.
* Students get the support they need in areas that they struggle and can progress at their own rate.
* Teachers can better connect with their students and understand their strengths and weaknesses.
* Students aren’t distracted by loud, overcrowded classrooms — fewer distractions means more instruction.
Research shows that students in smaller classes perform better in all subjects and on all assessments when compared to their peers in larger classes. Reducing class size influences socioeconomic factors, including earning potential, improved citizenship, and decreased crime and welfare dependence.
We believe high standards help teach self-control and responsibility. We strive to set high, yet achievable standards for our students. This includes giving clear expectations, and creating long and short term goals for each student within these standards. Through positive reinforcement, we communicate to out students that they are capable to achieve whatever they put effort into, and then we help guide them. We also work to help them limit their excuses. None of this can be done without parents who support both the teachers and the students.
Nurturing the Whole Child
Helping Our Community
Our yearly summer camp offers students a break from the curriculum of the regular school year. We engage the children through weekly themes, field trips, onsite events, special lunches, as well as fun contests and spirit days. We also devote a portion of each day to academic review so our campers do not forget all they learned over the course of the school year.
We offer full-day or morning-only programs. Campers do not need to attend our school during the academic year in order to participate in our fun-filled summer program.
