    We believe that every student has the ability and the right to learn. We believe that learning takes place best when educators, students, and parents share a common set of educational values and goals.
    • We believe and are committed to the application of technology as a tool in every classroom.
    • We believe our academic and arts programs will develop the inner disciplines and individual responsibilities needed to live productive lives.
    • We believe the self-esteem and individuality of a student will be developed as their artistic gifts are fine-tuned through various arts programs.
    • We believe that positive interactions and positive feedback from staff to students is the best way to encourage appropriate and desirable behavior and for promoting the development of good habits.
