While we are not an academically selective school, we are an academic institution that strives for excellence and our academic results consistently rank among the very best in the state.

We are not content to judge ourselves against other schools in our immediate environment; rather, we raise our sights and draw inspiration from the best educational systems around the world and from evidence-based research.

Our dedicated teaching staff are committed to ensuring every child has the opportunity to achieve. This holds true whether the boys have different needs, come from different educational settings, have different attention spans and interests, different language abilities or different cultural backgrounds.
