Mission Statement

Children are persons, thus they have the innate desire to learn and live fully. Students and Teachers are born Persons with an innate desire to know all that there is around them; they are respected as persons and are put into enriching relationships with the vast inheritance of knowledge around them. We become who we are through relationships with others. Grades, punishments, competition and prizes are unnecessary. Education relies on atmosphere, habits and ideas. A mind is the instrument of its' education; the education does not produce the mind.
