At our school, we have high expectations for all scholars, accompanied by high levels of support. The vision is that our scholars will graduate from middle school with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities needed to flourish in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Taking the individual learning styles of our scholars into consideration, our curriculum emphasizes technology, academics and the arts, in settings where they are challenged to use critical thinking skills, connecting their learning to the real world. Our classrooms all have SMART boards, complemented by state-of-the-art technology and science labs, a mobile science lab and laptop carts in all classrooms and modules. Our dedicated staff caters to each student to maximize his or her fullest potential. To achieve this end, the staff will be fully engaged:
- in professional development activities to enable each student to reach goals of high academic achievement.
- in staff team building that pools collective talents.
- in a collaboration that promotes best practices in teaching and learning.
Recognizing the importance of meaningful two-way communication, parents are kept abreast of what is happening in the school via auto-dials, weekly email updates, text messages, a monthly newsletter and our school website.
