Our curriculum prepare all students for success in college and career.
Our academic program exceeds the requirements to apply for a 4-year university and college, include the University of California’s A-G requirements. While most students take the same courses in the same grade level, we deeply value personalized learning and each course supports students individually and aligns their daily work with their long-term goals. Students often have the opportunity to choose topics that interest them within a project, and teachers help them engage with activities that balance support and challenge so that every student is growing every day.
