Our purpose is to engage our diverse school community in the pursuit of educational excellence and success for all students.
Maximize individual student potential
All students should have the opportunity, instruction, guidance and support necessary to succeed in school and maximize their individual academic, social and emotional potential.
Students must be active participants, at the center of the learning process, in an environment that encourages them to pursue their dreams.
Joy and wonder are essential elements in the learning process which breed passion and creativity.
Hard work and perseverance
Effort is more important than talent and should be cultivated in all aspects of school life. Success is earned through hard work and commitment.
Responsibility for excellence in education is shared by all members of the school community. Success is achieved through teamwork and collaboration.
Students should cultivate the habits of mind to be curious, independent learners who pursue their passions and understand the beauty and power of knowledge.
Culturally diverse community
Students develop compassion, empathy, and insight in an inclusive, culturally diverse community that requires them to consider various perspectives and adapt to different ways of being.
All of our actions and decisions should be guided by clear ethical principles. Doing what is right requires honesty, integrity and courage, and it is the school’s responsibility to support students in developing these essential traits.
We embody our values each day through three C’s:
Meaningful curriculum taught by great teachers dedicated to meaningfully connecting teaching and learning to the world and bring out the best in each student.
Engagement leading to real student success. We view education as an opportunity for children to learn how to live fully and become true global citizens, embracing multiple perspectives, broadmindedness, tolerance, and multilingualism.
Rich community of parents, students and teachers. In the partnership of learning between teachers, parents and students, community is lived through experiences that foster personal responsibility, cooperation, imaginative thinking, problem solving, decision making, care and respect.
