    Our Preschool - 12 educational experience prepares students to become life-ready graduates by:

    • Achieving and applying appropriate academic and technical knowledge
    • Attaining and demonstrating productive workplace skills, qualities, and behaviors.
    • Aligning knowledge, skills, and personal interests with career opportunities.
    • Building connections and value for interactions with diverse communities.

    The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is organized into five offices: Elementary/Intermediate, Secondary, Special Education, English Learners, Gifted, and Personalized Learning.
