We hope you can join us for our open house will be held on August 22nd from 5-7pm.


*Students attending our specialized FOCUS and MAPS programs may be placed outside of their neighborhood school. While we prioritize a student’s placement to be at their neighborhood school, not all schools offer all specialized programs, and other factors are also considered when making these individualized decisions. Class lists will be completed this spring and families will be notified in May.
