Our philosophy is to make the children aware of religion and to leave the choice as to which religion to follow to them and their family.

Learning support offered

We don't have a Special Needs class. The children are integrated as much as possible into the regular classes.

In the preschool, the parents provided a many that was on hand to take care of the physical needs that needed to be taken care of. Older children joined the others for P.E., lunch. A program was worked out that allowed them to be in the regular class, but doing something a bit different from the others. While having some teachers with the correct qualifications, given our program and size, we do what we can to support children that have special needs.

School is not a factory. Each students should be approached with Dignity, Honor, Respect and Integrity. Small classes allow teachers to have time to assist each student on an individual basis. Small classes allow students to have the time to address the teacher on a daily basis - they don't have to walk away not knowing what they need to know.
