I'm most proud of my grades. Since I've come here, I've been on the honor roll every single time.– Christopher, Student

Values & Expectations
All children can succeed.
All students are expected to achieve success in school.
All students will be prepared to achieve success in college.
College preparation is our central focus. Here, students develop the key characteristics that lead to success: basic foundations and skills, core content knowledge, critical-thinking ability, and personal integrity.
Core Value 1: Academic Excellence
Children often enter our schools testing two to three grade levels behind. Our task is to create an inspiring environment of expectation, support, and structure that allows students to build confidence, correct academic weaknesses, and quickly progress to full grade-level proficiency.
Core Value 2: Culture
Our highly disciplined school environment motivates students to learn, and frees teachers to teach. We nurture the qualities of discipline, respect, and hard work every minute of every day. Teachers are crystal clear that students should demonstrate values like respect, virtue and effort. The school culture makes it 'cool' to do well individually and to help each other.
Core Value 3: Commitment
No matter how a school may encourage and prepare students to achieve, their performance comes down to how they feel about their own success. Do they have the inner belief, confidence and commitment that makes it happen? It takes courage and perseverance. So to establish our students firmly on the long climb to college, we reward their commitment, enthusiasm, hard work, and achievement - and don't allow excuses. Each trimester, students visit top high schools and colleges to observe and experience - and come to know they belong there.
Core Value 4: Passion
Outstanding educators can boost a child's educational success in dramatic ways. Our students feel the dedication and passion for learning that their teachers display every day. It's contagious, spilling over in a sense of pride, so that teachers teach to the best of their abilities and students learn to the best of theirs. High expectations deliver great results.
