We are an inclusive learning community with a tradition of inspiring, supporting, and collaborating with students as they prepare to be engaged citizens in their pursuit of continuous success.

  • Finishing Strong in 2nd Quarter – With all the change we have experienced throughout this school year, we know that many of our students are concerned about their learning and grades. We want to make sure our students have the opportunity to recover the learning of key concepts so that they can move forward into 3rd quarter with the skills and confidence they need to be successful. Please view page 5 for a summary of how students can recover their possibly lost learning, raise their grade and start 3rd quarter strong for each of their classes.
