A professional learning community in which we model our academic vision (active, engaged learning) and provide the leadership to coordinate all programs within one complex. It features the latest in instructional resources, including model Pre-K—12 classrooms, interactive teaching labs, and diagnostic observation rooms that feature clinical studios where students tutor children and observe their learning styles.
