That is why we believe in exposing students to technology and resources and encourage them to explore the world of computer science. The High School course provides Computer skills key to 21st century literacy. Students will expand their knowledge to computer networks and how data is transferred securely through encryption.
This course also offers an introduction to algorithms and how they are used in problem solving. In addition, this course is focused on exposing the learners to a wide range of applications to solve different type of problems. Ethical behaviors and good manners when using information from networked sources, while also upholding the principles of intellectual property are woven throughout the course.
Music education has motivated students to become healthy, valuable, contributing members of society, a component of the high school curriculum. To belong to this micro-culture that is the music room students need to be disciplined.

Many of these students are also part of a sport team, math team, STUCO, special interest group while achieving good grades. It is no surprise to walk in and see all the different team uniforms, different personalities, and unique looks, but once they all come together to play music the audience is in awe.
