We are honored to welcome your child to our school. It is our goal to provide each child with a safe and loving environment so they can learn and mature appropriately. We have reduced out of school suspensions by 90% over past years, by incorporating restorative justice practices and socio-emotional learning strategies into our everyday curriculum.

We look forward to a year full of new friendships, energizing challenges, strong relationships, great successes, positive choices, and increased learning. We are all excited about the great things happening at our school, such as, K-8 Project Lead the Way and DAT Kids after-school care. And welcome some new and familiar community partners: 2 Chicks & a Hammer, Morgan, Emmanuel Church, and PwC, among others. We are always seeking new ways to get involved with our community and hope to see you at one of our future events!
