Our Unique Service Offerings
With a focus on problem-solving skills, critical thinking and ability to research independently, we strive towards preparing our learners for the outside world. Taking initiative and responsibility, self-motivation and self-discipline form the basis for a forward-thinking and professional learning environment.
Our small classes and individual attention means that each child works through the curriculum at their own pace. Focusing on each learner’s strengths and learning styles, our professional teachers are available for extra support during the school morning, making additional support beyond school hours necessary only in very extreme circumstance.
