Our Mission

We are committed to providing our diverse community of learners with appropriate academic challenges in a safe and supportive environment. Our school practices productive collaboration between students, staff, and families to promote systems and structures that support the social and academic development of all students as lifelong learners.


We are striving for every child achieving 95% or higher attendance for the school year! This means a student shouldn’t miss more than 9 days of school the entire 2019-2020 school year! Please do your very best to get your child to school every day! Please reach out to Ms. Yanga, Attendance Designee, or the School Counselor, Ms. Newell, for assistance with attendance issues! 215-400-8180
