In addition to our academic program, we offer many opportunities for students to pursue their interests and strengths. We develop future leaders through participation in Student Council, Eye-to-Eye, Yearbook and athletics; artists through our arts program within the academic curriculum and creative opportunities such as video making, theater, portfolio creation and musical performances; and world citizens through our service learning opportunities, outdoor educational trips and international trips.
