  • All Students will be  provided a safe and judgment-free school environment that values students from  different cultural and communication backgrounds.
  • All students will be  exposed to modern technology to prepare them for 21st century  careers.
  • All students will be  provided a well-rounded education to include extra-curricular activities,  clubs, vocational opportunities, and community outreach.
  • All students will  achieve independence through exposure, exploration, and real world experiences.
