About our School

Our school is one in which candidates, faculty, and staff embrace the shared experiences of a diverse, international, professional-learning community.

The School, therefore, strives to facilitate diverse learning environments where knowledge becomes the means to foster goal attainment for all those involved in the learning process. This process necessitates the highest ethical standards, while emphasizing inquiry as the means-ends connection to enhancing reflective intelligence in a changing social, political, cultural and technological world.
