Daily social-emotional learning has been a cornerstone since our inception, ensuring that students not only excel academically but also develop crucial life skills.
🍎 Class Sizes and No Homework Policy: Small class sizes are a hallmark of our kindergarten, with an average of 18 students per class, and approximately 25 students per class in other grades. Recognizing the importance of balance, our K-8 students enjoy a no-homework policy when productive in class, allowing for a harmonious blend of academics and personal time.
