We truly believe that each of our students has potential and something to offer the world. As illustrated, in Malcolm Gladwell's book David and

If our students learn to believe in themselves, work hard, and develop the resiliency to persevere, they will not only overcome; they will excel. Difficulties such as dyslexia, learning differences, ADHD, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and any number of other challenges can actually give us an advantage. They force you to look at problems differently, to be more creative, more determined, more of an out-of-the-box thinker, and team player.
