The fundamental program was created for the specific needs of parents who wanted a more structured learning environment for
their children. They believed strongly that parents should participate in school activities, help create a more responsible student and
secure a safe learning environment for their children. It is our goal to provide a safe environment that is conducive to a student
learning and a teacher teaching.
