Our Principles in Practice

We Are All Teachers

We understand the educator's perspective. We are always looking for opportunities to improve our methods - by growing professionally, we become better teachers and teammates.

We Value Communication

Every interaction with a parent, teacher, and child receives our full attention. We value the small stuff as much as we do the big things - you will always feel that your voice is being heard.

We Solve Problems Quickly

When concerns do arise, we act with urgency to solve them - listening and responding as soon as possible. We do not put off until tomorrow what can and should be handled today.

We Act With Integrity

We proudly act with the highest level of ethical conduct, adhering to federal and state licensing standards, following company policies, and holding ourselves accountable.

We Value Relationships

Celebrating each other's successes, looking for ways to help each other, and respecting our teammates and their opinions are pillars of our culture. Things don't work if we don't work together.

We Are Driven By Results

Innovating, listening to new ideas, and developing the leaders of the future help us achieve our mission. Day in and day out, we seek out change - after all, that's what makes us better.
