Failure is not an option, because...success is the only option! 

Our mission is to cultivate and develop the entire school community so that all students are college-and-or career ready. With foci on all populations of children, teachers will engage collaboratively to ensure accelerated student learning through reflective practice and professional learning experiences. A guiding philosophy of all adults in the school community is that every student deserves an effective teacher, and we work tirelessly to seek out opportunities that will advance this belief.


Our goal is to increase the number of level 3 and 4 students by 10% in English Language Arts and Mathematics.
