ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

2 TEACHER MODEL

Every middle school class will have two teachers of record. Teacher one teaches ELA and History. Teacher two teaches Math and Science. Our teacher ratio is 1:15. This allows us to build really strong relationships with our students because that matters to us.

EXTENDED DAY/SCHOOL YEAR

Our school day is from 7:30AM to 4:30PM. We believe that every minutes matters and additional minutes improve student achievement.

First day: August 10, 2020 | Last Day: June 8, 2021
