Student Council

Our Student Council is generally composed of 15 to 20 students from 3rd through 8th grade. Open to any students, the Council meets once a week under the supervision and guidance of one of our faculty members. The goal of the Student Council is to offer students a space where they can participate in the life of the campus, as well as be representatives of their fellow classmates to relay their voice to the administration of the school. In doing so, students get acquainted with the fundamentals of the democratic process as all decisions taken by the Council are subjected to a debate and vote.

The Student Council also organizes fun community-building events held at our campus such as Crazy Hair Day, Teachers' Appreciation Week, Chess Tournaments, etc... with the goal to teach our students leadership and organizational skills.

 

Community Events

Since its opening in 1988, our campus has always set as one of its main goals to build a vibrant, thriving and diverse community within Orange County. The small size of our campus along with an exceptionally warm and nurturing environment created over the years by our staff, faculty members and several generations of families have helped create a very unique sense of community. 

We are proud to nurture this school culture by offering our whole community several opportunities to come together during special events throughout the year.
