Military families face unique experiences and stresses in daily life that the civilian
population is not subjected to. With over one third of our student body connected
to the military, we are sensitive to effects this may have on military children and
work to help them cope when difficult situations arise. We strive to create a supportive
environment for our children whose parents work to defend our nation.
