Leadership development begins in middle school as students are taught and empowered to self-advocate and lean into their strengths.
The curriculum focuses on the core subject areas of language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Acting as a distinct unit of the school, social-emotional development occurs around the advisory program, middle school clubs, and extra-curriculars, including sports teams.
Leaning into Strengths

Science curriculum advances from life science to earth science and culminates in physical science as math progresses to Prealgebra and Algebra. Electives reinforce problem-solving skills in application.
Studio art explores a variety of media in creative expression. i4 which stands for imagination, innovation, invention, and inspiration, is an application of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics principles in a teamwork-based curriculum.
Field experiences as a class, in advisory, or with subject-area teachers connect students to real-world examples of their learning and promote community service to connect and engage with others.
