that is flexible and inspires learning and creativity. Our curriculum features an
integrated approach to learning that promotes connections to the real world and
emphasizes a strong reading, math and science focus. Interactive technology is woven

proposition. Our instruction is tailored to meet the varied needs of each student. Math
and science areas are activity-based with a "hands-on" approach. Students engage in

and Math) initiative, Project Lead the Way. Our comprehensive literacy program
recognizes the unique literacy needs of individual students. We guide students through
effective core reading instruction, small group guided reading, and prescribed reading

education. As a school, we make data part of our on-going cycle of instructional
improvement for both teachers and students. In addition to the regular curriculum,
we offer Spanish, art, music, media and physical education. These programs help our
students develop creativity and self-expression.
