We are very excited to WELCOME everyone in our school community.

-----> 902 students and their families (approx.) 

-----> 99 teachers, administration/staff (approx.) 

-----> 20+ spoken languages are represented including – Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Creole, English, French, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Other - Asian, Other - Indian Sinhala, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, Ukrainian, Urdu. 


Fun Fact: 10% of our students speak another language at home.


Student and family participation is essential to make this fun, engaging and educational. It is understandable the school year gets busy and is packed with many priorities; hence all activities are being designed with flexibility to fit schedules.
