Our Children are encouraged to excel in every area.  Some examples of how we prepare them for success include:

  • We teach sign language to all our students.

  • We use a curriculum that is an original design called, "Show What You Know".  This encourages our children to have the confidence to show you what they have learned each day. It also helps to prepare them for public speaking and developing early leadership skills.
