Each grade level is organized into two smaller “cores”, enabling students to achieve better results in smaller learning environments. Two distinct North and South pods fulfill the specific needs of the 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Each core group of students is provided with a science room and prep area along with one classroom space and one flexible space that can be divided using movable partitions.
