Our Mission Statement
We hold our students to the highest academic standards while providing them with the direction, support, and encouragement they need to be successful.
Because children learn in different ways, we offer flexible programs that help each child meet his or her maximum potential. Our students benefit from small class sizes that promote classroom unity and foster lasting friendships. At Garden Hills children are taught respect for the individual and are empowered to go out into the world with compassion and caring for others.
