In an increasingly interdependent world, knowledge of world languages and cultures is a vital part of the preparation for a student’s role in the world community.
We are a school community that values diversity as an asset. Celebrating, validating, and preserving the multicultural and multilingual backgrounds of our students and their families while immersing them in our diverse national culture is essential. As advocates for our students and their families, we make connections and encourage their involvement in the school community. Students will be provided culturally relevant and academically challenging work that fosters their social and emotional development as members of the global community.
