State-of-the-Art School Building on 33 Acres in Quiet Residential Neighborhood
The school building reflects the importance of community-building in our culture. The commons area, located in a sunlit atrium, serves as the "heart of the school." Lower and Upper School community meetings are held here weekly. The Parent Association Office is just off the commons area, making it a convenient spot for families to connect with one another.
