OUR MISSION is to provide a motivating and challenging high-quality educational program that inspires students to academic success. We achieve this by offering a curriculum emphasizing higher level mathematics as well as written and oral communication skills in several languages. Our interdisciplinary, hands-on approach takes place in a safe, orderly and nurturing multicultural environment which promotes intellectual development and responsibility.

To accomplish its mission, the school makes every effort to:

  • Teach toward mastery of the basic skills.
  • Encourage the love of reading and writing in both languages.
  • Promote critical thinking and problem solving in both languages.
  • Improve social skills (i.e. self-control, self-esteem, self-respect, self-motivation, conflict resolution, cultural diversity awareness, and acceptance).

OUR GOAL is to prepare students to be confident, goal-oriented lifelong learners in order to succeed in today’s multi-national society.

OUR VISION is to become the premier K-8 private school in the Bay Area where all students are given the opportunity to exceed national norms.


  • Student achievement is the chief priority of the school. 
  • Literacy in a bilingual environment prepares our students to meet the needs and challenges of the twenty-first century.
  • All students can learn.
