"Inspiring Greatness in Tomorrow's Leaders!" 10-8-15

Think Win Win, Synergize and Yee-Haws!

Thank you to the entire Solana Ranch Staff for working so incredibly hard! I wish everyone could have heard the positive comments from our Strategic Planning Day when parents and staff were asked how Solana Ranch helps students "Shoot for the moon." One parent even cried when speaking about our school. The collective efforts of the staff to create a nurturing and rigorous learning environment focused on Leadership and Growth Mindset have created something very special!
