We offer varied curriculum experiences and knowledge to support a total education experience which strives for excellence. Our committed and professional staff provides creative and diverse teaching strategies.

The school has 250 students of which 104 are from a Croatian background.

School has three programs:

 - Mother Tongue for students from Prep Grade Six
 - LOTE program for students from Prep Grade Six
 - Each class gets one-hour lesson per week.


Every second year the school organizes Croatian / Italian day where students, parents and teachers are immersed in the culture of the languages taught in the school.
