Our School Vision and Mission

We prepare students to leverage their grit to build academic stamina, while building bridges across differences to create positive change.

We explicitly teach and continuously reinforce rigorous and relevant instruction within a compassionate, mindful, and safe environment.

We lead with learning as the main event, with equity at the center and student voice as the driving force.

We inspire our students and staff to continuously find ways to work collaboratively, to spark curiosity for learning, and to find the joy in the process.
