A Message from the Principal

Welcome to our exemplary school. We are an authorized International Baccalaureate World School that implements the Primary Years Programme. Our IB curriculum focuses upon broad topics that can be applied internationally. We celebrate our diverse student population and the many cultures that are reflected in our school. Students are encouraged to inquire, investigate, and explore as they learn about the world around them. Character development is a pivotal component of our programme. Community service is advanced throughout the grade levels. Student reflection is promoted through the use of homework and reflection journals. Students are expected to think about their learning and how they learn. We strive to provide an enlightening, engaging, stimulating, and challenging experience for all our students.
