Heart • Mind • Community

Each of these elements is a core value for our teachers, administrators, students, and families, which we bring to life everyday.


  • Our teachers have incredible passion for what they do, inspiring students to understand and nurture their own passions.
  • Our students learn resilience: We encourage students to take risks, to persevere, and to understand that failures are opportunities to learn and grow.
  • We know our students—what is interesting to them, what is happening in their lives, and the best ways to help each child learn.
  • We cultivate compassion in our students: Through engaging with those around us here at school and in the broader community, our students learn trust, empathy, and kindness.
