No Rank Policy
It is our policy not to rank students. Our classes are small, our program highly rigorous, our range of grades narrow, and our students almost without exception enter competitive four-year universities.

We offer a wide range of extracurricular activities for our students, both before and after school. These activities include Model United Nations, photography, investigative science, sign language, African dance, debate club, computer programming, track & field, volleyball, soccer, basketball, swimming, band, choir, guitar club, chess, crochet, clay and pottery club, art, outdoor investigation club, and arts and crafts.
