School Notes:

  • Being a small school makes it possible for us to know each student's strenghts and weaknesses. For students who are identiied as struggling an individual learners plan is created with specific goals that address the area(s) of concern. Financial aid is available to qualifying families. We have an after school program from 2:00 - 5:30 (cost not included in tuition). Our library is usually open after school 4 days a week until 3:00 for students who have research to do or who may want to stay to work on their homework. Gypsy, our R.E.A.D. visits the school about once a month for the students to read to her. Our science program for grades 5-8 uses the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) curriculum.
