In the Elementary School, excellence begins with the quality of instruction, materials, and experiences we provide for our students and, in time, develops into an expectation for and commitment to excellence by our students. Research-based learning tools and strategies and consistently administered standardized assessments provide a cohesive, quality learning experience. Our teachers treasure each child as a unique individual made in the image of God. It is our privilege to serve the Lord by partnering with parents to shape young lives.
