There is no single component that is more essential to student achievement than the teacher that is in front of the student.  We believe that intensive, targeted and sustained professional development of teachers is essential.  The Board of Trustess and our administrators support our faculty and teacher teams to develop their professional competencies.  We have created the atmosphere of reflective practice in our school, where we use our internal structures such as department meetings, faculty meetings, full-day professonal development days, and summer work sessions to create action plans to achieve growth in our academic program to benefit our students.
