We combine rigorous academics with a strong focus on providing a well-rounded education. By having student hours from 8am-4pm, students have time for over three hours of literacy, 90 minutes of math, and daily science/social studies. At the same time, we have a focus on character building and enrichment opportunities like art and music. Students also have daily recess and kindergarten students take a nap. By the end of Kindergarten, over 75% of students are reading on grade level. Saturday morning sessions four times a year provide a chance for students, staff, and families to come together for hands on projects and performances.
