HOMEWORK

Homework is a priority, so we provide a relaxed, inspiring climate to get work started. Students are given a prepackaged snack, or they can bring one from home.

Middle school students need an environment tailored just for them. Growth happens when students feel supported and heard.

We listen. We mentor. They grow!
