About this school

Our entire school design is focused on the needs of students with academic giftedness in at least one area. These students usually have scores in at least the 80th percentile, if not 95th or 99th percentiles, in reading, language, math~ they require curriculum at a deeper level and faster pace than typical programs provide. We ask that parents carefully consider if their children have these gifted educational needs, and we invite them to contact the Academy Director with individual questions.
