Our mission is to empower all students for the choices and challenges of the twenty-first century. We believe that we should teach students to respect themselves, others, and the environment, that we should teach students to participate productively and responsibly in a rapidly changing society, that we should teach them to communicate effectively, that we should teach them to use cooperative and independent learning strategies, that we should teach them to apply problem solving processes, and that we should teach them to set and meet high standards.
