Academic Approach and Performance

 We believe that learning occurs when the students' needs and experiences are the center of instruction. Instruction is delivered at each child's academic level. Teachers use real world experience and hands-on learning to create an environment of high engagement and rigor. The school emphasizes inclusion for all students, and believes that providing students with the tools to be self-directed learners is important.
