Points of Pride

  1. We have two teachers in each classroom and 18-20 students per class which allows us to individualize our education plan for each and every student.
  2. Free door-to-door bus transportation helps to insure the safety of our students and to guarantee that each student is in school everyday. 
  3. 63% of our faculty and staff have their masters degree or higher, and our Principal and Executive Director have a combined 50+ years of public school experience.
