21ST CENTURY READINESS
Students are challenged to be critical learners, consumers, decision-makers, and thinkers. These are fundamental upper school skills that students are encouraged to develop by graduation.
Upper School students are provided with tremendous support to develop self-esteem, confidence, independence, organization, self-control, and self-empowerment. We support our upper school learners with experiences they may not typically receive anywhere else.
Similar to our lower and middle school program, our upper school students receive the superior teacher to pupil ratio 16:1 that equips students for a lifetime of success.
Candidates and their parents are invited to tour our school and see why our Upper School stands out from any other school.
