School Designed for Students & Families

Extended Day: Our extended academic school day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the ability for students to arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. and depart as late as 5:15 p.m., giving them time for rich academic instruction, personalized attention, and unique extra-curricular opportunities.

Extended Year: Our school calendar begins in August and includes a 2-day Book Swap program and an S2 orientatio n day prior to the first day of school.

Advisory Time: Students participate in an advisory-style program that draws from a research-based mindfulness curriculum to increase focus, concentration, and self-awareness.

Partnerships: We connect our students with high-quality cultural and community partnerships that spark their passions.
