About Us

Our school’s vision can be summed up in three words: Happy, Safe, Learn. Since the school opened in 2008, we have strived to make sure that everyone within our community feels part of that vision. We believe that everyone – that is all children, all families and all staff – have the right to be happy, be safe and be able to learn.
