The school regularly sends encouraging messages to the students about the student body’s proper actions and everyone’s inclusion.

During winter break, spring break, and some holidays, we are open as well. On big holidays, we are locked. (For more information, see our Overview of Events.)

Educational norms define what students in each grade should know and be able to do in each subject. The State Board of Education in California agrees on the norms for all students, from kindergarten through high school. The Department of Education of California helps schools ensure the expectations are met by all students.
Since 2010, a number of states around the country have adopted the same standards for English and math. These norms are referred to as Common Core State Values (CCSS). Even if they change schools or transfer to a new state, getting the same requirements helps all students get a good education. The CCSS was developed by teachers, parents, and education experts to prepare students for college and workplace success.
