Our mission is to develop successful young adults who are leaders for peace and social justice. We are doing this by building the most incredible high school that has a small, tight knit school community alongside the learning opportunities of a much larger school. We want our students and their families to know they are being both challenged and supported every day to help them be their best selves.
