This was the first Design-Build project to advance under SDA’s new Capital Program. This school includes 51 homerooms, special education classrooms, small group instruction areas, technology lab, gymnasium, media center, a multipurpose room with stage, art room and music room.

Technology is incorporated into the curriculum daily. One of the areas that we would like to highlight is the integration of NEWSELA

Early childhood

Our Pre-K program, supported by Tools of the Mind Curriculum, is a developmental approach that allows each learner to become a part of the school community. We have 10 pre-k homerooms with approximately 15 students enrolled in each class.
