Our values are encapsulated in SELA’s every day curriculum, learning, and culture.
Multilingual We immerse our students in a second and third language through play, research, and hands-on experimentation. We communicate confidently and creatively, in more than one language.
Community We build strong relationships between students, teachers, and parents creating a genuine feeling of family. We value opinions and foster a warm and friendly environment.
Inquiry We nurture curiosity, developing skills for exploration and research.
Caring We show empathy, compassion, and respect. We have a commitment to service and act to make a positive difference.
Principled We act with integrity and honesty and respect others. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.
Open-Minded We appreciate our own cultures as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view and grow from the experience.
Balance We balance all aspects of our lives – intellectual, physical, social, and emotional – to achieve well-being for ourselves.
