Our Beliefs

We believe that IT increases student learning and enhances student performance, and therefore should be incorporated into the entire curriculum.
• We believe that teachers have a responsibility to increase their knowledge and to enhance their curriculum with training in IT, to collaborate with peers, and utilize state of the art technology.
• We believe that we increase student achievement by providing consistent and frequent access to faculty and staff members for both parents and students.
• We believe parental involvement is a key to student success and that by providing parents with many opportunities for communication with and involvement in the school, we will improve the environment of the school and advance the mission.
• We believe that our curriculum and program are strengthened through our business partnerships due to the support we receive, which increases student achievement.
