We believe academics, social skills and respect are important. Real life should be integrated into the classroom to make learning meaningful. We value communication, creativity, flexibility, cooperation, small and large group participation, community service, goal-setting, leadership and family involvement.
We see personal growth occurring along a continuum of expanding abilities, awareness, and attitudes.
