Student learning is designed to support students' preparation for a balanced lifestyle.

Unpacking the Commitment

We recognize that the years in school prepare students beyond the world of academics, and we realize the importance of social and emotional preparation beyond the walls of the classroom. Therefore, education is preparation for decision making, critical thinking, and involvement in activities in a balanced lifestyle.
