Administrators and Teachers work closely to identify areas of focus for professional learning to enhance the curriculum and course offerings. This year, teachers took time to visit the classrooms of identified "master teachers" in order to continue a process of professional learning utilizing resources available within the building each day.

Parents

There is a Parent Portal through our Student Information System that parents can access in real time to see student grades and attendance.
