We envision providing a safe and respectful school climate that is conducive to enhancing a student centered learning environment.  We will motivate students to strive for social, emotional, and academic excellence by establishing family, school and community partnerships. Through instructional best practices, students will be equipped with skills to make decisions that will enable them to become social change agents of their community.
