Simply the best. Kids work for the excellent 'Distinguished School' Award. High achieving students only need to apply. Teachers are very involved and actually care about their students progress. The kids love the flutophone music program. Your child will love being a Mustang. We will truly miss all ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
