                                    Research indicates
                                    that the student of
                                    today learns much
                                    differently than the
                                    student of the past.
                                    We are meeting that
                                    challenge by providing
                                    curriculum that is
                                    rigorous, relevant, and
                                    truly engages the
                                    student.
