Our daily schedule is rigorous and jam packed, but filled with opportunities for students to demonstrate what they know in a student-centered environment.

Please make sure your child comes to school EVERY DAY as much as possible.

Although illness is an unavoidable part of life, keeping your child at home when they are not very sick will make it very difficult for him or her to catch up.
