The school will promote: excellence in oral and written communication, mastery of more than one language, proficiency in computer issues, appreciation of cultural diversity, concern for international and global issues, and commitment to lifelong learning. It will be characterized by excellence in teaching; instructional methods that connect learning to the real world, practical applications; and close cooperation among communities, parents and teachers.”
