Our Mission

Blue and Gold




Small school atmosphere; part of a family; make a point to know all parents and students; comfortable; welcoming; we value each individual. We are a family community school that prides ourselves in excellent customer service. We have a committed staff that collaborates for the well-being of each student and are responsive to individual needs.

Stellar Points

We are a STEM focus school! We embrace a growth mindset by helping our students reach success with the following attitudes: I can learn anything I want to; When I’m frustrated, I persevere; I like to challenge myself; When I fail, I learn; I like being told that I try hard; If my classmates succeed, I’m inspired; My effort and attitude determine everything. We believe in teaching and learning through inquiry. One of the ways we do this is by using Design Thinking to solve real problems and issues related to what we are studying. All of our learning is framed around a focusing lens that helps us make sense of the world and are enduring understandings that will matter years from now. In September of 2015-16, we received a $10,100 grant from Otter Cares to create an Innovation Station (maker space) where students will have space and time for innovation, creativity, engineering, and designing.

Neighborhood Block Party

Every August, we kick off the year with our Neighborhood Block Party. Many local businesses donate services and goods for our students and families.

We look forward to continuing this great event every year!
