Language & Communication

English Language Arts encourages students to find their “voices” as they collaborate with world literature and complex texts. The study of English further develops their communication skills and cultural expression.  Students reflect rigorous critical-thinking at all levels of literacy from English Learners to students with special needs and to IB “Diploma Programme” participants.

Our mission is to provide a quality arts and educational experience that is creative and challenging to all students who have an interest or passion for the arts.  The integration of an education which supports the A-G requirements for college admission and a visual and performing arts theme will provide opportunities to increase student engagement and participation, promote the arts as an essential part of life by making connections to student life experiences and global issues, to promote visual and artistic literacy and create a lifelong passion for the arts.

The Parent Center provides a safety net for parents to gain know-how across a broad spectrum without embarrassment. The Parent Center will also provide a portal, which links the surrounding community to the school and vice-versa. In short, the Parent Center will be a critical enabler that helps parents expand their capacity to support their children emotionally, socially, and intellectually.
