In addition to the core academic program, daily instruction is offered in Spanish to all students giving them early exposure to another language.

Upper School students have the opportunity to participate in an elective block, which allows them to explore their interests through a variety of course offerings.

    The learning environment created by this enriched and integrated curriculum fosters opportunities for students to ask questions, explore their own thinking process, take risks and make informed decisions. Students are involved in class projects that support their development as confident, competent, and collaborative learners. Opportunities for hands-on exploration and real-life application allow students to extend and apply their knowledge beyond the classroom.
