A strong, proud community
Although our schools are the focus of this organization, promoting good quality public education also affects quality of life, property values and has other less tangible benefits. We feel strongly that the entire community benefits.
You can help!
We are also dedicated to not only communicating the many positives in our schools and our rich multicultural community but to actively promoting and working on improvements for all residents.
You can help by using local businesses, celebrating the accomplishments of our students and residents and being proud of your community.
