    SCHOOL FEATURES
    • Expanded Learning Time (ELT) School: Students receive additional time for academic, social-emotional, and recreational opportunities beyond those offered during a traditional school day. 
    • The Blossoming Reading program supports English Language Learners by developing literacy in the student’s first language while also teaching English. The faculty utilizes various teaching models to accelerate core academic skill development in the student’s native language as well as English, so that students can advance and participate in dual language or English classes.
    • The STEM program offers opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It incorporates technology and engineering into the regular curriculum. The program teaches independent innovation and allows students to explore greater depths of all subjects by utilizing the skills learned.
