Middle & High School

Our faculty members are an increasingly diverse part of our community. Classroom teachers are all native English speakers who are partnered up with a local Chinese co-teacher. This team works together to ensure that every child is learning in a safe and supervised environment, encouraging our students to make the most of their instruction time.
