The school is a dynamic learning environment organized into five learning communities: PK-K, 1st-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th-6th, and 7th-8th. Flexible grouping arrangements and project/problem-based learning are core tenets in creating challenging, meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for all students.
