Safe, Disciplined, Civil Learning Environment: We offer an inclusive learning environment that welcomes students of any race, religion, national origin, social class, sexual orientation, language background, exceptionality and ability.
Technology-enriched Teaching & Learning: Students and teachers use technology for instruction and production. Through innovative, technology-enriched study, students research and produce projects, they edit digital sound and images, create animations, design products, create websites, and write code for programs and games.
Design-Learning: Our comprehensive Design-Learning approach develops the students in communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity; skills that they'll need to be successful in the global economy of the 21st century.
STEMD™ Curriculum: Courses integrate the academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering, media and design (STEMD™). Our students develop multiple literacies, including digital, visual and media literacy, as well as reading, writing and mathematics.
Project-based Service Learning: Interdisciplinary project-based study helps our students apply, in-depth, the content they learn. Service learning is the lens through which our students identify, study, and solve problems facing their city and the world.
