We believe a childs education is served best when his/her individual needs are met within a challenging and comprehensive curriculum. We must have as our primary purpose the developing of responsible and well-rounded bilingual students who will be able to meet the challenges of the 21st century with confidence and anticipation. We also recognize that a modern school program must be grounded in sound and current education practice. To this end, we believe that staff development is an integral part of our schools success. We believe that children learn differently and that instruction must be geared to the various learning styles in each classroom wherever possible.
