In addition, we offer academic support in the context of after school tutoring and Saturday academic sessions.Character Education and Positive Behavior Support in Schools (PBSIS) are central to promoting a positive environment for our students. We emphasize six character strengths – grit, empathy, self-control, zest, curiosity, and optimism – specifically identified as factors that will promote student success in school and beyond.
