Counseling services are provided by an outside agency.
We provide our students with state adopted curriculum as we use common core standards to guide our teaching. We enhance our student academic skills by providing additional support through our weekly enrichment programs. We offer assemblies and programs that value our different cultures and increase self esteem.
We are beginning our 10th year as a "Leader in Me" School providing opportunities for students to become leaders. Every student will be provided access to their own computer to support the 21st century learning. Our school will foster a positive climate where character building and academic skills will be developed and enhanced to a higher standard through the use of PBIS.
Parental and Community participation and support is a vital part of our school. We will be providing monthly parent meeting to increase learning for our students as parents do "make and take" workshops as a means to support our students.
Our volunteer program enhances the school experience of our students creating a nurturing environment.
