We believe every child deserves a chance to reach their full potential, and thus we provide high levels of both challenge and support. We are proud of our school and excited about the many new programs we have put in place to support our students. Come and visit us!

Every Day Counts
Attendance is crucial to student achievement. When a student arrives late or misses school, it negatively impacts their ability to keep up with progressively challenging instructional material. This year we have implemented a new positive incentive program that is already paying huge dividends. It is called PERFECT attendance. Classes strive for seven days of perfect attendance, with no students absent. For each day that every student in a class is present, the teacher writes a letter on the board, until the class eventually spells the word
“P-E-R-F-E-C-T.” Winning classes receive a prize.
