At the primary level, we have the honor of shaping the beginning of our students’ educational journeys. Our goal is to instill in our students the joy of learning so that they will be receptive to academic challenges as they continue towards middle school and high school. We strive to provide our students with a comprehensive educational experience that leads to academic, social, and emotional growth.  As we strive towards excellence in all our endeavors, we welcome you to help us in this journey!

Our strong partnership with our families, community and staff will join together to create individualized plans for students to help them reach their greatest potential for success. This partnership will be achieved through parent-teacher conferences. individualized meetings and agency support.
