All our students enjoy one or two 20-minute of recess on the Playground or Field. The younger grades get two recess periods.
In addition to our strong curriculum, we offer a great variety of programs and activities beyond the classroom that enhance our student's life on campus.
We wear our school colors and show our spirit at least once every month. We coordinate special activities across the school and get to wear our shirts casually or with P.E. bottoms.
