Learning is a lifelong process of discovery, transmission and the use of knowledge to make sense of the world and develop as a person. All students are capable of learning and using their knowledge to live a happy and productive life. Each student enriches his environment and provides his fellow learners with unique experiences and useful lessons for life.

School

  • Self-discovery
  • Preparation for the future
  • The opportunity for guided practice with a safety net
  • Exploration and development of one’s skills
  • Meeting students’ basic needs while providing an absence of threat

 Learning

  • is a hands-on immersion into new ideas
  • causes  each student to be a  purposeful thinker, communicator, self-directed learner, responsible citizen and productive group member
  • consists of the storage, organization, acquisition, retrieval, expression and manipulation of information.
