Subjects

Our highly-considered curriculum meets the student at each developmental stage, working with a teens' evolving thought process, growing individualized spirit, and unique interests. The subjects work to bring out the best of what students have to offer by including them in themes that seem just right for the moment. In this way, each course builds on the previous course, layering their knowledge and familiarity as well as their confidence in the material and in themselves.

Incoming students take placement tests to determine the appropriate Mathematics track—college prep or Honors—and their course level in World Languages—Mandarin or Spanish. 
All students take four years of art and music, and students with previous musical training may audition for the Orchestra or Jazz Band.
