We Believe in Balance
We believe in balance of a well rounded curriculum, a variety of teaching methods and addressing individual student learning styles.
Teachers ensure that the AZ College & Career Ready Standards are taught thrughout the curriculum.
Our Curriculum is always staying up to date and ever changing. COVID-19 does create some obstacles for our school, but it does not stop us from providing the most for our students. This year each student will receive their own personal Chrome Book to eliminate any possibility of spreading COVID, while making sure each student has the tools to succeed this school year. Traditional in school teaching and some traditional areas of the carriculum will not proceed until further notice.
