About

Our motto is: "Academic, artistic, and professional preparation for the 21st Century." Students achieve best when learning is applied to research, experimentation, creativity, and projects. Students participate in a four-year college preparatory curriculum, AP courses, college partnerships/trips, and present a college prep portfolio at the end of each school year. Students study visual art, design/photography, and film-making and complete four years of special arts topics seminars. Many enroll in accelerated visual, performing, and media arts academies. Our Advisory-Family program provides support and a strong peer community. Through student-centered learning and strong relationships, we nurture students' development and their potential.
