Student-Centered Learning


We use a variety of rigorous instructional activities and approaches that are centered on where students are at and focused on growth.



Beyond technology, our staff are encouraged to try new ideas and techniques to best engage students. When using technology, it isn’t about the device, but about how it can allow students to dive deeper into learning.
