Frequently Asked Questions

  • What types of learning experiences are available — in class, on the playing field, in extracurricular activities, in leadership programs, or through community service?
    Our approach to learning is hands-on in the classroom. “Entry” and “Exit Points” allow students to immerse themselves within their learning by getting excited and engaged in the themes. In addition to our in-class learning experiences, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities after school. Students can participate in clubs like drama, tennis, book club, CSI club, and yearbook club, which all provide opportunities to explore interests and develop new skills.
