Our Story

Our educational program meets all of the NYS Learning standards requirements of literacy, mathematics, social studies, science and the arts. The integration of technology partnered with effective remediation, and enrichment, programs are all part of our goal in meeting the needs of all the students in our school.

Instructional Focus

The Instructional Focus is to build teacher capacity to design rigorous tasks incorporating higher order thinking questions that promote student strategic thinking and reasoning through student-led discussions, utilizing school-wide discussion protocols and DOK question stems to support their questioning skills.
