My info


We are a small International school that works in teams to prepare newcomer students for college and careers while they learn English. We value all that our students bring to our school, especially their native languages and culture. Students are prepared academically, socially and emotionally to achieve success in college, career, and in life no matter where they begin. Our college advisory program helps all of our students graduate with a plan that connects them with scholarships and financial aid for college in and out of state. To learn about careers, every student has an internship experience prior to graduation. Our rich academic program that includes the arts, sports, computer science, and clubs is open to all students.
