Our mission is to create an enabling student-centered class environment where all students feel comfortable and safe enough to have freedom of expression, supported and bold enough for critical inquiry and confidently strong enough to strive for excellence in all endeavors, so that they can become useful citizens in a 21 st century society. Through care, we inculcate in them the value of self-esteem as well as respect for others so that they can be dignified people who appreciate and tolerate individual differences.
