    DSA ever!)
  • Spanish instruction for all students
  • Science instruction in our SCIENCE WING
  • Student Organizations and Clubs
  • Guitar Instruction for 6th grade and Ukulele Instruction for 5th grade
  • Core Knowledge: Core Knowledge Sequence represents the common ground upon
    which faculty meets and collaborates to teach a sequenced, coherent science and social studies curriculum
  • Kagan Cooperative Learning: implemented to increase academic achievement for
    all students, enhance self-esteem, create a more harmonious classroom climate,
    reduce discipline problems, and develop students' social skills and character virtues
  • Adoption of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS): a systematic
    approach to support student positive behavior
  • Accelerated Reader: supports and promotes individualized student reading growth
  • Project Based Learning: through PBL projects we raise students' level of engagement,
    authenticity, collaboration, and higher-order thinking, which increases the rigor in our
    classrooms and develops great 21st Century problem-solvers 

School funding can be very confusing!
