This K-8 school's mission is "to provide a total educational experience of the highest quality, nurtured within an atmosphere of high expectations, mutual respect, and commitment to excellence." Their motto is "Every Student Can Succeed."
The student body comprises speakers of over 16 different languages, and 73.9% of students have a first language other than English.
