Core Beliefs


People Matter


We Believe …

  • In the intrinsic worth of every individual;

  • A school must be student-centered; we are deeply committed to the success of all our students;

  • Our students will be leaders in their lives. We strive to develop students of strong positive character, modeling the traits of respect, integrity, perseverance, and courage;

  • A diverse, inclusive school community whose members are inherently valued for their unique perspective and experience benefits all members of that community;

  • All adults within the school community must operate in trusting, open, respectful partnership for students to fully benefit from the educational programs of the school;

  • Skilled and passionate instruction is the most important factor in student success.

  • We are committed to attracting and retaining a high quality, dedicated, expert faculty.

School Structure Matters


We Believe …

  • Children learn best when they are known and cared for as individuals; this best occurs within a small school environment;

  • A school’s model matters; and the K-8 model is best for students during their formative years;

  • Montessori education provides a strong foundation for later learning.

Programs Matter


We Believe …

  • A school’s curriculum and methodologies should be based on research and best practice;

  • Academic programs should be rigorous and challenging; success should be attainable by all students through diligent effort and appropriate support;

  • A school’s programs and curriculum should be designed to help prepare its students for success in today’s rapidly changing, shrinking and linking world;

  • Physical health and wellness, a deep appreciation for the arts, and participation in co-curricular programs add depth and richness to the lives of our students and develop skills, talents, and habits which are equally as important as academic success.
