Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision

There exists in every child curiosity, creativity and intelligence. Our vision at Green Valley School is that through a carefully prepared environment and a firm foundation in universal values, that every child will grow to their greatest potential to live happy and fulfilled lives and forever remain lifelong learners.

Our Mission

Our mission is simply to develop a child’s inner potential. Our educational materials and our prepared environment provide experiences involving friendship, service, adventure and competency. We also attend with the utmost care to the foundation underlying everything: the student’s practical understanding of the universal moral values.
In this way a student:
-- Gains a passion for excellence
-- Nurtures his curiosity and creativity
-- Develops a strongly held set of values, which include self-respect, respect for others, honesty, integrity, responsibility, empathy, compassion, kindness, concern for others, warmth, and a sense of community
-- Develops a global perspective and a firm sense of interdependencies
-- Acquires a lifelong commitment to give something back through service to others who live in need
-- Awakens his human spirit
