Fostering a love of lifelong learning for all students
The Department of Learning & Achievement is committed to:
- Providing quality learning experiences that lead to high levels of learning for each student;
- Delivering professional development opportunities to help teachers learn more about instructional tools that can be used in classrooms, effective teaching practices, and ways to measure student learning; and
- Leading a review of tools used in classrooms, learning activities, and different ways to assess student learning.
We strive to ensure that each student has the opportunity to learn at high levels by focusing on the different ways students learn and connecting what's learned in the classroom to what students experience in their daily lives.

Kindergarten is a time for growth and discovery as children are exposed to a wide range of subjects, including math, reading/language arts, social studies, science and more.
In elementary school, your child will experience academic rigor in subjects ranging from reading/language arts to math, science, social studies, health, art, music (vocal and instrumental) and physical education.
Our middle school program keeps young adolescents engaged and challenged; helps them discover new interests; and supports their intellectual, social and emotional growth. While in middle school, your child may even take courses eligible for high school credit.
High school offers opportunities for students to explore, grow and prepare for entering the workplace or college. In addition to choosing core subjects and a wide range of electives, your child can participate in sports, theater, arts, clubs, music, community service and leadership opportunities.
