Our Mission is to provide each student with the academic resources needed in today’s world.

Our school history celebrates students who have gone on to graduate from West Point, Berkeley, Stanford, The California Maritime Academy, and several East Coast Ivy League Schools including Harvard and M.I.T.

Today’s students need communication skills to survive.  A framework of learning skills, both intellectual and social are needed in today’s world as never before.  As our student body enrollment increases, so does our team spirit.  Each classroom is designed to fully engage students and provide them with greater enthusiasm for learning. 

A well planned curriculum to the smallest detail makes for a memorable experience that students, teachers, and parents are proud to contribute to.  Our teachers and staff remain dedicated in addressing the needs of each student academically.

As partners with your student
we know the importance of providing your child with the fundamentals of a strong and basic education.
