TEACHING EXCELLENCE

Our school’s most important resources are our teachers: highly-qualified, caring individuals who make each child their top priority. Our teachers’ long-term dedication to school and students translates into a stable learning environment.

Access to these talented people, at the center of a child’s education, is essential.  Congressional encourages and facilitates parent-teacher interaction whenever and wherever possible.
