Vision, Mission, Purpose


Children and community that value arts and learning!


Our mission is to provide a collaborative, democratic learning environment, empowering each individual to become self-directed, life-long learners who value community-focused and citizen based action facilitated through effective communication, collaboration, critical and creative thinking.


Our purpose is to transform children into young people who are curious, kind, empathetic and engaged; preparing them like no other school to contribute and lead in their communities.
