Our Theme

2022-2023 school year

For our 2022-2023 school year we created a theme to unite our campus! We chose “Be Fearlessly Authentic”

This theme will encourage our students to:

  • feel safe and at home.
  • make mistakes and learn from them.
  • take leadership roles.
  • become independent.
  • pursue their dreams and passion without being discriminated against.
  • have a direct and uninhibited communication access.

Early Learning Program
