Our Mission

OUR MISSION

“In a loving and caring environment, Peninsula Heritage School fosters each child’s intellectual, social, and ethical growth. Our strong academic program challenges and supports each individual within a school community which values diverse backgrounds, talents, and learning styles.”

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

The purpose of Peninsula Heritage School is to provide a strong academic program coupled with a focus on developing each child’s character and moral fiber.  The School helps each child develop not only their special talents, but also a full sense of self as an individual with innate, unlimited abilities.  Believing that it is vital to be able to relate to others different from oneself, we strive to have a diverse and inclusive student body.

 

The Peninsula Heritage School provides a learning environment that:

  • Expects each child to achieve a balance of academic excellence, physical aptitude, and character development.
  • Helps each child to pursue an active curiosity, to experience a love of learning, and to feel the excitement of grasping new ideas.
  • Addresses the individual needs of each child by recognizing his or her uniqueness, dignity, and worth.
  • Develops each child’s unlimited potential.
  • Offers each child a comprehensive curriculum that fosters the ability to think, reason, analyze, and use information.
