A Message from Our Head of School

Thank you very much for your interest in Seven Arrows Elementary School. After eighteen years, the Seven Arrows community continues to grow and amaze me with its passion for education. I am grateful to have played a meaningful part in the lives of the many incredible children and families who have been part of our Seven Arrows Way of Education.

Success by our standards is measured in one simple but fundamental way: Have we as a school inspired our students to be passionate learners and compassionate leaders? Are they engaged and motivated to be lifelong learners? Do they embody integrity coupled with the skills needed to lead from the heart?

Every day I walk on campus, the answer is unmistakable in countless examples of our students as ethical, loving, resilient, supportive, and motivated individuals who strive for excellence and make us all proud. We can rest assured that we are sending into the world citizens who will stand for what they believe in, who will innovate and imagine, who will make a difference in local and global communities, and who will inspire and touch others through their creativity and passion, thereby making our world a better place for all.

This is the power of a single community working together for the lives of future generations. We are deeply committed to each child and to our world, and we invite parents with the same dedication to join our tight-knit community.
