Our school has fully implemented the Common Core Standards and has transitioned to student centered lessons with a focus on real life problem solving skills. In addition, our response to intervention (RTI2) program is maturing becoming stronger and more effective as we strive to provide all of our students with what they need when they need it. Our students are receiving focused interventions and enrichment opportunities through Universal Access, Small Group and Individual Instruction as well as Before and After School Tutoring. We offer a variety of elective classes for our seventh and eighth grade students such as AVID, MESA, Spanish, Creative Writing, Leadership and Geography. These courses are designed to promote academic enrichment while still fostering students’ individual skills and interests. In addition, students from all grades have an opportunity to participate in after school clubs such as Art (K-8), ASB (6-8), and Yearbook (5-8).
