We work with parents and community members to create a culture of high expectations by meeting regularly. With all educational partners,  they discuss our instructional programs, progress of the school and individual students, as well as expectations of school staff and parents. We celebrate our school community’s diversity with culturally relevant literature, school spirit activities, visual arts and school-wide performing arts culminating performances.
