In the Middle School, students build on their repertoire of basic skills.
The strengthening of students' organization, time management, critical thinking skills and work habits are integral components of the program.
In the High School, the curriculum focuses on the student's integration, synthesis and application of their individual learning styles and the knowledge they have acquired.

This school has been the best for my son. His self esteem rose after the first week! The teachers are well aware of how to help these kids succeed with new technology and different teaching techniques. The art classes are terrific. The yearly musical is amazing and there is a verity of after school sports.
