Biology class filled with art Hanging sculptures, evolution wall art, DNA strands, and STERNGRRR illustrations help students to know the content better than ever before.
Biology goes visual with a “model” classroom Student-created models of processes, membranes, DNA strands, muscle fibers and many others fill this room and show students’ understanding of biology in concrete ways.
An English Language Arts class illustrates Literacy takes all kinds of forms in this classroom as seen with these written and illustrated student biographies and again when personalized stories are created as a part of a study of graphic novels.
A math classroom full of color From the bright school pride bulletin board to color-coded processes and formulas, smart board exercises, students know creativity is welcome in this math classroom.
Social Sciences art in class and out of class These collages in the hallway about the diversity of people and cultures show the expected standards of presentation and higher levels of understanding. Students are consistently showing their knowledge visually and through presentations in the class.
World Languages has a lot to say Colorful and challenging word walls, photographs and art assist in learning a language in multiple ways, reaching students in new ways. This German classroom’s creativity is not confined by its four walls by expanding into the hallways over lockers and all over their door so students can learn a little German on the way to Science…
We have a bright past and an even brighter future because we also… Have superior visual and performing arts focuses for: Creative Writing Dance Music Theatre Visual Arts
Band has space to breathe Students warm up with a balloon exercise in their new spacious rehearsal classroom with sound absorption, and instrument storage. They also have separate small group spaces for specialized ensemble practices.
Choir for All Students appreciate their new rehearsal space equipped with sound absorption and large enough for a growing choir to sing, a large storage space for performance attire, music storage and an office.
Creative Writing happens here, there and everywhere The English language arts department is proud to offer classes on creative writing, poetry as part of the visual and performing arts magnet. We look forward to reader’s theater, poetry nights, and expressive readings of original works.

Smiles and sun light up this new theater classroom The bright new space has students excited to practice improvisation, showing their willingness to learn through body language communication, voice and working together as a team.
Photography classes thrive here With a new digital lab on the way and film technology still readily available for use, our photography students explore and express their world as it is seen through the viewfinder and in their minds’ eye.
A brand new Visual Arts classroom Our school values students having spaces that invite creativity and this room is so new it is waiting to have students add their new 2- Dimensioanl artworks to it.
Visual Arts students at work In this class students are demonstrating their knowledge of traditional tye dye methods, bookbinding crafts and painting.
Stained Glass and more Student to teacher ratio is low so that students can concentrate on meaningful designs with meticulous detail for this specialized craft and art form.
