Our students and staff represent our local community as well as more than 50 countries from around the world, and speak more than 30 languages. Our goal is to create a community of learners by delivering quality education, fostering critical thinking, and maximizing the strength and potential of each child. We strive to enable children to become educated, self-confident, well-rounded and responsible global citizens. Our exemplary project—MOSAIC—celebrates our diversity and mission by using globally diverse literature to introduce students to cultures from around the globe while implementing strategies to scaffold students’ reading and inspire learning and exploration.
