Philosophy and Goals

PHILOSOPHY

We believe that every child has their own unique genius, and that our endeavor is about awakening and nourishing the brilliant, inquisitive spirit and intellect in every child. We believe by having a limited number of students per classroom, each student can be given the individual attention they deserve. We believe that children have the right to be inspired by their peers and educators in a learning environment that is both conducive as well as fosters human excellence. We believe that Northstar School is not only a learning institute but also a community. We encourage parents and community members to participate in this endeavor and share with us the blessings of continuous charity.
