Shaping 21st Century Learners

We know that our students need the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in high school, college, and beyond in light of the global competition of our inter-connected digital age.

That is why we have implemented the following to best prepare students for the joys and challenges of tomorrow:

  • Integrated the nationally-recognized Common Core State Standards across all disciplines;
  • Adopted the SpringBoard® Pre-AP Program--the only CollegeBoard-approved curriculum that empowers all students with the strategies and rigor required to gain entry into and demonstrate academic proficiency in high school Advanced Placement classes; and
  • Committed to make learning engaging, meaningful, and visible everyday through close reading of complex texts and evidence-based argumentative writing.
