About Us

The Education Division is dedicated to the concept that all students, from earliest childhood to adulthood, can learn and master basic educational skills. Students can succeed regardless of previous academic history, family background, socio-economic status, gender or ethnic identity. We believe that the primary purpose of our program is to instill all students with high expectations of academic success and competent thinking skills while fostering growth in social/emotional behaviors and positive attitudes.

Services provided by the Education Division include the following:
