Educational Programs

Our goal is to promote student achievement and develop critical, independent, and creative thinkers. Our program is enriched and accelerated with gifted and high achievers clustered in classrooms. Instruction is differentiated to provide students with complex and challenging curriculum involving grade and across grade level collaboration. Our teachers receive specialized training in differentiating instruction and implementing parallel curriculum.
