Student minds have been hard at work as students engage in student discussions, cooperative groups, and inquiry based learning.

Student bodies have been cared for through the implementation of a choice based lunch menu and increased student choices at PE.

Student souls have been nurtured through high fives, frequent praise, the use of Classroom DOJO, the colorful hallway displays, and by having teachers who celebrate their success.
