French class is part of the curriculum for students from nursery to 5th grade. Nursery and pre-kindergarten students have French class every day, while the upper grades have it twice a week. The French vocabulary complements the English and language vocabulary to make a full immersion of the language arts.


Our library has more than 30,000 volumes that our Early Childhood and Elementary students can enjoy. At least once a week, our students visit the library and enjoy great story time!

MAP stands for Measures of Academic Progress or MAP Tests. This is a computer adaptive test that is given two times a year in the areas of Math, Reading, and Language Usage.


Students from Kindergarten to Tenth grade take MAP tests. These tests measure student growth and assess student’s mastery of skills. This guides teachers’ planning and helps them differentiate instruction inside the classroom.
