Upcoming Events

Message from Our Principal

We offer a range of elective classes providing both support and enrichment opportunities for students.  After a major remodel and addition completed during the 2014-2015 school year, our students moved into a brand new building designed with innovative learning spaces that encourage community building, flexible groupings and blended learning.  Approximately 555 sixth through eighth grade students are enrolled during the 2017-18 school year, with classes arranged on a modified block schedule with a traditional calendar.  We share our campus with Arroyo School (a 4/5 upper elementary school), which opened in the fall of 2016.


Learn how we support innovative student learning.
