We are an innovative, project-based 9th-12th grade learning community committed to fostering a professional environment, inspiring creativity, and empowering students to collaborate and compete in a rapidly changing world. With an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) and interdisciplinary connections, student learning is anchored in real world experiences which rely on continuous collaboration with others both inside and outside the school.

Learners apply the content they are learning to real world situations that engage and allow a much deeper connection. This school's unique environment has been extremely supportive of our solar car team, and has allowed us to embrace the guiding principles of the school which include: learning from failure, collaboration, innovation, and communication.
