Values

We believe that each child has an inherent right to an education. It is our intent that he or she will develop his or her maximum capabilities, regardless of sex, ethnic, economic, social or religious background.

At Maury, we believe that each child has the ability to learn, regardless of his or her rate of learning. Therefore, we pledge ourselves to meeting the challenge by providing a comprehensive educational program in an atmosphere that is open and responsive to the needs of our pupils.

We believe in an inquiry-based environment where students must use critical and analytical thinking. We believe that hands-on learning in various settings is a crucial part of learning. Our caring staff attends to each student’s learning style to help him or her succeed.
