Diversity

We seek to achieve a diverse student body in our classrooms as we believe this is an enriching and essential experience for students as they learn from each other and prepare to navigate an increasingly diverse society and interconnected world.

STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

We evaluate our ability to meet the needs of special education students on a case by case basis. Appropriateness of placement is reevaluated informally on a yearly basis. Please submit the most recent IEP for review, along with a release of information for a current teacher or daycare provider.
