Mission Statement

In 1986, over 11,000 teachers applied to be the first teacher in space, Christa MAuliffe was chosen and she was not afraid to dream. She told her students, “Whatever it is, try it. You can do more than you think”. Our school embodies this bold idea. In partnership with our dedicated parents and the community,  our diverse students are nurtured as achievers and agents of change. Our staff is passionate and excited about learning, seeking new ways to make school fun, exciting and innovative.  As a nationally recognized award winning STEAM school and a recipient of numerous sports accolades in the district, we have created an atmosphere where students thrive in their individual strengths and cultural differences. 
We are confident our highly challenging academic and arts program will allow students to reach their full potential and be ready to compete in a global 21st century society.
