Our Values

Take Risks

Provide opportunities to build a student’s innate motivation, confidence and skills to take supported risks within a nurturing environment where it is safe to fail.

Educate the Whole Person

Develop the physical, social, cognitive, linguistic, emotional, social and spiritual aspects in our students and promoting their holistic development by linking school experiences to students’ life experiences.

Student Led

Support student development through the use of learning approaches that motivate students to develop theories, questions and ideas that build critical skills in the learning process. 

Environmental Stewardship

Utilize the diverse habitats that exist on the 555 acre learning environment to foster a connection with and develop an appreciation for the natural environment.
