Spend the year exploring your creative side.  Students will have the opportunity to look at and make art, applying techniques and skills using different materials.  During the year, students will study the elements and principles of design.  We will think about, talk about and make judgments on works of art, including our own.  Critiques are in both verbal and written forms.

The purpose of AVID (Grades 7 & 8) is to prepare students for success in high school and college. The course has strict qualifying standards, and helps students by teaching study and organization skills, strengthening writing skills, provides tutorial help via college tutors, builds leadership potential, teaches students to work collaboratively, and provides kids a glimpse at college applications and college life.  Guest speakers share their secrets to success, and students tour Bay Area colleges.  This is a class that will most definitely set students on a successful path.

Core Academics

New ideas. New concepts. New skills.

Educating students to their highest potential. That is our mission.

Grades 6 through 8 is when our students explore core subjects more deeply and discover new interests and skills that may continue through high school and beyond. Our teachers provide strong core academic instruction through their broad knowledge of the subject matter, standards-based curriculum, and creative lesson design.
