Our mission is to provide educational experiences that meet the needs of our diverse student population. We empower our students with college ready skills through our Pathways to Calculus initiative, Pre Law Academy, Service Learning Projects, and rigorous AP coursework. We build on the potential of our students both as individuals and as valued members of our society; through a focus on culture, community, and civic engagement. With the help of our school community, students are empowered to become lifelong learners and agents of change.
