In addition to ensuring students excel on standardized tests, the school is focused on an academic program that prizes critical thinking, creativity and community building. So at the school, art, music, physical education and social-emotional development are core parts of the curriculum for all students.

The school takes a balanced approach, complementing the creative, project-based and constructivist instruction with detailed assessments of each child at the beginning of the year and at three additional times throughout the year.
