We prepare our students to take academic and creative risks and learn from both their successes and failures. We encourage middle schoolers to take personal responsibility for their own learning while supplying the tools, 信息, 以及组织能力，这是提高成绩所必需的.
中学 extension and elective courses are designed to expand our curriculum into other areas that develop new skills and deepen the learning experience. 大部分的延伸课程和选修课都属于体育类, 视觉和表演艺术, 阀杆或人文学科. 这些课程都是实践性的, 经验, and exploratory and give students opportunities to take risks by trying new areas of interest. 扩展 Courses also offer students and teachers alike the opportunity to interact with students from other grades.
