Our Vision

MuralWe are a premier project-based school that inspires students to become active world citizens by cultivating a desire for creative and deep learning in a safe, supportive and inclusive community. 

Our Beliefs: Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships

We believe each person is his or her own best teacher.

We believe students learn best when they are engaged in what they are learning.

We believe the process of learning (self-direction, curiosity, research, creativity, cooperation, and self-evaluation) are more important than any exact, fact-based curriculum.

We believe parent and community involvement enhance learning.

We believe small school size creates a more cohesive learning community.

We believe project based learning allows students to incorporate their natural talents and interests as they prepare to continue on their educational paths.
