We promote strong communication between the home and school to plan an instructional program that challenges and engages students' thinking and creativity through school and home experiences. Language, ethnic and cultural diversity are respected as enhancements to student learning. We encourage the development of partnerships with parents, community, agencies, educational organizations, cultural institutions and the private sector to support our students in their journeys.
