Students are strongly encouraged to attend every day on time, behave appropriately, and put forth their best effort. Our aim is to create lifelong learners who exercise self-discipline and self-motivation and attain fulfillment. We help students to recognize that their fulfillment is rooted in the care and respect that they show to themselves and to others. We ensure that the faculty and staff are consummate professionals, dedicated to student and parent needs. Faculty and staff maintain high expectations and provide creative, rigorous instruction, using state-of-the-art educational tools. They also commit themselves to modeling for students a love of learning and a deep level of caring and respect for students and community members.

School Culture
Student Attendance(Not Available)
This is the average daily attendance at the school – on average, what percent of all the students enrolled at the school are in attendance. We don’t know why students may not be attending the school, but if this is a low number it is likely that teachers may have to spend more time reviewing material that absent students miss, making it harder to move forward in a class.
