COMMUNITY SERVICE

One of the key elements of our mission is to contribute to the community

We value building relationships with our community, not only for the help and support we can provide to others; but for the benefits it brings to our own students. Through contributing to the community, our students develop empathy and connection to others. Our students become more socially responsible and develop skills to solve real world problems.
