Every student deserves the opportunity to transform his or her life through college education. The journey to and through college begins with a challenging and highly-supportive learning environment.
We must hold ourselves to the most ambitious standards possible, because we are responsible for helping our students meet and exceed the standards society sets for them.
Student success is driven by a rich character education, a deliberate approach to community building, and a diverse array of enrichment opportunities. We educate the whole child, understanding that character growth and cultural competency are essential to a successful future.
The active development of student voice through debate, public speaking, spoken word, and leadership training will prepare students to exhibit responsible leadership and advocacy in their communities.
No individual in our community will ever be truly excellent unless we are all excellent together. We expect the most out of each other every single day, and we provide boundless supports when we struggle, because we know this is how a community grows together.
Our families and our community are our partners. They support and sustain our students’ growth and the long-term success as a school. We value open communication with families and the community, and we work alongside them to set the most ambitious goals for students.
