Teachers, Advisers, Sponsors, & Staff

Our high school students are truly “seen” and known by every adult in the high school. As faculty and staff, we devote our full attention every day to the well-being of every student in our school. Teachers know each student’s strengths, abilities and temperament, and are able to expertly teach to the individual.

Advisers guide and support students throughout their four-year journey. Class Sponsors regularly meet with students and parents to create unity and foster communication within each grade level.

A Close-Knit Community

In our high school, friendships extend beyond class boundaries. Our students are kind and fun-loving; our school environment is healthy, supportive, and safe. Some classes take place in smaller groups and others as a whole school, yet the majority of our courses are designed for the entire grade level.
