At HCS we wish to provide students with a quality education from a Godly perspective. We understand that learning doesn’t take place only in the classroom but is developed hand in hand with parents and is influenced by many different people, experiences and opportunities. We also know children have different learning modes, therefore we use a veriety of methods for instruction. In our planning we utilize many resources, including text books, technology resources, community and our school family resources.
