School Quality Snapshot 2018-19

Principal's Welcome

Welcome! I am honored be part of this community! I firmly believe all of us are on a journey of continual learning and must keep ourselves open to the academic and life lessons that are regularly presented for each of us. Additionally, I am firmly committed to my mission as an educator of helping each person reach deeply towards their own personal best.

We are committed to ensuring that everyone is treated with respect and that students reach deep levels of profound learning through relevant, engaging learning experiences. Our staff of extraordinary teachers, paraprofessionals, and office personnel arrives each day prepared to give their best to our students, families and school.


We know that ensuring students receive a quality education in a caring environment with engaging work is a team effort, and we are grateful to have such supportive and involved parents standing behind the children we serve. As partners, please know that you are a critical part of our school community.
