Volunteer

It is a requirement that each family spend 30 hours of parent involvement time at our school during the year. Research clearly shows that when parents value, support and engage in education, the children achieve at a higher rate. We have a multitude of opportunities to become involved in our family-oriented school.

 

All employees and volunteers are fully background checked.
