The academic program focuses on developing inquiring, knowledgeable and well-rounded individuals. They encourage students to think independently, take risks and care about each other and their community. There is a strong emphasis on developing a solid foundation on math and language for the students and also incorporating a stimulating learning experience in science, arts and physical education. The academic program is challenging, but the teachers work closely with the students to develop their confidence so that they can be successful. They are also encouraged to learn and maintain good work and study habits in the junior grades so that they can manage as the learning material and workload becomes more complex at the senior level. As an International Baccalaureate school, part of the academic focus is on developing cultural awareness, and encouraging students to take an interest in global issues. In addition to the strong academic focus, there is an underlying theme of character development for the students, which I feel is essential for a successful future for my sons.
