A National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence serving about 1,000 students in grades 6-8, we offer a solid educational and nurturing environment in which learning and the personal growth of each student are given the highest priority. Our students can take advantage of a range of academic experiences including foreign language instruction, physical sciences taught in our unique Planetarium, hands-on experimental science courses in our state-of-the-art science labs, and accelerated English, math and science strands for gifted students. Our rigorous curriculum is supplemented with living history days, school trips to theaters, historic sites and visits to cities such as Washington, DC. We also hold an exchange program with a middle school near Madrid, Spain.
Character education plays a significant role in our school. Our students and faculty have given much time and resources to many successful community service projects.
Finally, most of our students are active in extra-curricular activities, including band and orchestra, drama, choral groups, sports teams, yearbook, school newspaper and other clubs and groups.
You can find this information and download the application for Free and Reduced Price Meals on our Cafeteria web page.
