Our talented staff is dedicated to creating a dynamic classroom experience that ignites curiosity and fuels a thirst for knowledge.  We’re on a mission to guide your child to academic excellence, helping them build a strong foundation that will empower them to dream big and achieve even bigger.

    Attendance Matters, Every Day Counts:

    Did you know that each day your child spends in school is a step towards success? We’re committed to ensuring that every student gets the most out of their education. Regular attendance is not just a routine – it’s a commitment to growth, a pledge to embrace every learning opportunity, and a promise to make the most of their potential. Let’s team up to make sure your child doesn’t miss a moment of the amazing journey we have ahead!

    Embracing Diversity, Celebrating Unity:

    Our Santiago family is a tapestry woven with the threads of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences.  We believe that understanding and celebrating our differences is what makes us strong.  Throughout the year, we’ll come together to celebrate the richness of our global community, promoting empathy, kindness, and a sense of belonging that goes beyond the classroom.

    Get ready for a year packed with learning, exploration, and fun! I encourage you to explore our website to discover the incredible resources and information we’ve put together to support your child’s journey.  Don’t hesitate to reach out to our staff with any questions or ideas you may have – we’re here to partner with you every step of the way.
