Students in each of our nurturing elementary schools have access to various support services and instruction in library, physical education, art, and music. Our middle school focuses on the unique characteristics and needs of young adolescents and serves two primary purposes: academic excellence and personal/social development. Teaming is a cornerstone of the middle school that helps to achieve these goals. Our high school is a student-centered environment led by forward-thinking faculty and leadership committed to offering traditional and non-traditional classes, with unparalleled performing arts and visual arts programs. A wide variety of elective course offerings from skill level programs to honors and Advanced Placement courses is available.
Our secondary schools have extensive interscholastic, intramural, and arts programs. The curriculum format focuses on the development of strong basic skills through a challenging curriculum, leading to solid academic preparation for college and other post-secondary objectives. There is respect for individual differences among pupils and an expectation of excellence in teacher performance and program management.
