Fall semester was filled with exciting learning experiences and holistic growth opportunities!

We continue to expand our business partnerships in the community and share best practices for parents at our Fall/Spring Curriculum Parent Night. We believe that it truly takes a village to support our children and their success. We invite all incoming 6th Graders to attend our Saturday Safari on Saturday, February 1 at 9:00am to learn about our school, tour campus, select classes, and submit registration paperwork.
