Visitors to any classroom will experience the positive energy of students actively engaged in meaningful learning experiences that combine reading, writing, investigating, and calculating. All students have access to and use of technology in their classrooms and the library to support their acquiring content standards. Classrooms are organized to facilitate individual or collaborative learning so that students learn to care and appreciate each other regardless of ethnicity, language background, performance level, or disability. We expect our students to focus on achieving their personal best academically and socially. We celebrate student accomplishments in the classrooms and at various school wide events.
