when we sing,
we announce our existence.
~Bernice Johnson Reagon
We consider music to be a social force...a tool to be employed to shape society and inspire nobility.
We acknowledge the power of the people in our communities to nurture and shape our identity.
We are committed to putting our learning and creativity to work in the world ...letting deeds not words define us.
We promote a broad based, experiential, arts-infused, holistic, and socially relevant philosophy of education.
