We are deeply saddened by the loss of a pre-kindergarten student who suffered fatal injuries in a school bus accident early yesterday morning. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the family faced with the untimely loss of their young child. Another student was seriously injured and transported to an area hospital along with the driver of the bus for emergency care. We’re encouraged to report that both the student and driver are stable at this time.

Focusing our efforts on the local economy and the global market, our school aims to bring all disciplines together focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as the anchor. We also use various collaborative approaches to help our students work in teams to learn together.
