My Students

Our school serves students in grades K-8 and provides rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment.

Our Pre-K unit is comprised of 40 students, who come from bilingual households and receive free lunch.

In our school, we try are best to give the students the best education we can as educators. We feel in our school and community that it takes a village to raise a child. We are very dedicated to the making our students success stories.

My Project

Fostering creativity won't just increase a child's chances of becoming the next Picasso. It is also helping him develop mentally, socially, and emotionally. Creating art may boost young children's ability to analyze and problem-solve in myriad ways. Art It's the Process, Not the Product. As kids manipulate a paintbrush, their fine motor skills improve. By counting pieces and colors, they learn the basics of math. When children experiment with materials, they dabble in science. Most important perhaps, when kids feel good while they are creating, art helps boost self-confidence. And children who feel able to experiment and to make mistakes feel free to invent new ways of thinking, which extends well beyond the craft room.
