We are encouraged to provide our teachers with all the tools necessary to learn, to teach and to give our students reasons to learn and to be prepared for life and all the challenges they’ll need to enter the work force.

Head Teacher

The year is divided in two semesters.

Report Cards are sent to parents at the completion of each semester.  Progress reports are sent at the end of each quarter. Students also collect data on their academic status four times during the year, excluding report card time. Courses run on a Monday to Friday schedule for either a full year or a semester course.  Each day has 9 periods and you will see all students you teach that day. You will see your students every day of the week. Each department has a Common planning period (CPT) and each teacher has at least one prep-period a day.
