It takes a village…

High School is one of the most essential turning points in an adolescent’s life as their independence and individuality is tested daily. Our program has been designed to provide students with small group learning experiences in core classes that will prepare them for success in their high school career. In an effort to support students socially, emotionally and academically we will provide a structured learning environment where students are encouraged to take risks and develop their skills. The program divides students into 5 cohorts of about 20 students who are serviced by the same 6-8 teachers. Each cohort has all of their classes on the same floor, with the same teachers.  The benefit of this is that teachers and students get to build a relationship with each other yielding better  academic  success and guidance with their social emotional development.
