Our students are the curious ones – the ones who aren’t afraid to ask why, to try something new, to get it wrong before they get it right.
Because if it wasn’t for curiosity, no one would have ever discovered that the earth is round. If it wasn’t for questions, we wouldn’t know that we can ﬂy. If it wasn’t for exploration, we would never have reached the moon. Questions took us there.
We believe in the POWER OF WONDER.
It begins with students as agents in the learning experience. When students are exploring, reflecting, questioning, evaluating, making connections — and expert educators are creating and welcoming these moments of discovery — students are truly learning.
Every day students are engaging as curious thinkers, challenging their intellect, and building the skills needed to lead lives of ongoing inquiry.
We welcome different viewpoints and perspectives. Ensuring that every member of the community enjoys a sense of belonging is paramount to the school’s mission and aligned with our virtues of Integrity, Kindness, Perseverance, and Respect.
We celebrate our differences and various backgrounds, and we become stronger together.
