Students also benefit from incidental and daily contact with the Spanish language. Four of our staff members are certified or proficient in Spanish.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of before or after school programs.

Our staff not only sets high expectations for all students by delivering differentiated instruction, but also embraces the three foci of our PBIS system: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe, as a philosophy that teaches social responsibility and character development. Students earn Falcon tickets daily in addition to the monthly FUNction incentive and Falcon Store shopping day.
