SCHOOL YEAR AND SCHOOL DAY
Our school year begins mid-August and we finish early June. Our
school day is from 8:00am - 3:00pm.
We believe children learn best by doing and we facilitate a myriad
of opportunities for hands-on learning. We also believe that leaders
can be equipped from all social classes. 50% of our students are
from very low econonic resources and recieve an almost 100% scholarship.
The social mixing creates compassion across the classes.
