OUR SCHOOL

OUR MISSION

Our mission is that every child can achieve academic success in a literature-rich environment with instruction that is meaningful, stimulating, and creative.

This idea guides us as we design developmentally appropriate and interactive learning experiences for our students.
 

Our educational program is geared to help our students reach the New York State Next Generation Learning Standards in ELA and Math. We place an emphasis on incorporating student choice and voice in the curricula.


We strive to be a collaborative, nurturing, and loving learning community.


We respect and celebrate the uniqueness of each of our students.
 

We provide students with a safe and nurturing environment in classrooms where student discussion is valued, interactive learning is practiced, and individualized support is provided.
