Our mission is to develop independent, self-directed, life long learners who take responsibility for their own behavior and who contribute to the school community. We expect mastery of basic skills while holding the highest of academic standards for each child. We work for the development of all aspects of the child - physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and aesthetic. We recognize the uniqueness and dignity of each child, and provide flexibility in programming to address individual learning styles and maximize student achievement.
Morningside is special because…
it has a unique parent and school partnership and a strong sense of community.
