Students are our most important educational resource, and they require thorough preparation to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Each student should be accepted as he/she is and provided with experiences to achieve his/her goals.
The mental, physical, social, and emotional well being of every student is of great importance, and every student should be provided with a secure environment and learning opportunities. Each student is unique and deserves equal opportunity to develop his/her talents and potentials.
