Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
We have a common goal to develop the whole child in order to promote deeper learning through critical and collaborative thinking. Through unique and equitable learning experiences, scholars will acquire knowledge and develop skills to help them think logically, creatively, and productively. Scholars will understand that their mindsets, words, and actions have an impact on the world around them.
Our school creates real-world connections using a cross-disciplinary approach through project-based learning to foster our scholars’ independence, perseverance, and self-expression. Scholars will learn to trust in their own capacity and competence through trial and error. They will embody personal accountability, courage, and excellence. We will give our scholars the tools and assist them in developing skills to adapt and keep up with today's technological world. We create an inclusive community where scholars use their reasoning and empathy. Scholars will use what they have learned to become advocates for progress in their local communities and in the world at large.
As of November 19, 2020, all school buildings are closed until further notice, and all students are learning remotely 5 days a week.
