Our mission is to ensure that all students leave the eighth grade with the knowledge and skills to be successful in a college-preparatory curriculum in high school. As a school community, we share the fundamental belief that all children can and must succeed. We strive to produce lifelong learners who can think critically, solve problems, utilize technology and are able to embrace diversity and change. Our students are placed in Academies by grade level, and each academy is supervised by a full-time Dean. Our Dean's all have principal certificates and teach daily.
