Family-Oriented

We view our parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. We encourage you to actively participate in your child's education by attending school programs, volunteering, and talking to your child about their day.

College Prep Curriculum

We believe that every child must be prepared for college, leadership, and life - and that this begins as soon as our students walk in our doors as 9th graders.
