Building a Brighter Future!

Building a Brighter Future! Ready... Set... Go!!!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. We are very excited to begin the year together with this group of outstanding staff members.


Vision:

We are a No Excuses University campus that works in collaboration with each other to ensure that we are closing the attitude gap in our students by treating them and each other with respect and care believing in restorative rather than punishment.


Mission:

We will design and implement learning experiences for EVERY student, without exceptions, and without excuses, that provide engaging and innovative experiences, effectively utilizing our resources, every day.


School​ ​Motto:


Learners today - Leaders tomorrow


We have the power to build a brighter future for our students. Let's do it!
