Teachers are well educated to plan and execute Common Core lessons that not only engage students, but also keep them on task and wanting to learn more. With SMART Boards in every classroom, and a technology lab equipped with iPads, Nooks and tablets, the sky is the limit as to the academic information afforded to the students.
Classes follow a broad academic program which includes computer lab, science lab, second language, music, health and physical education.
