Our Mission:

Focus on learning rather than teaching

in order to reach understanding.
                                                                                                                 - Dr. William Glasser's Choice Theory

Our Beliefs:

      "forget what you know...
  ...move from Learning to Thinking to Creating."
​                                                              - Jacob Barnett

Students should be judged not by what they cannot  
                                      do, but what they CAN do.                                                                           ​                                                          - Author Unknown        
           To enable students as fully as possible to choose
           and, in freedom, to realize their individual path
                                      through life as adults. 
                                                - Waldorf\Rudolf Steiner Education    

   It's not how smart you are, it's how you're smart! 
​                                                              - Dr. Howard Gardner
