The school strives for an understanding of culture, languages and multiple perspectives for students to see the world in every light. The school offers core subjects that are geared to a bilingual perspective. This not only teaches students a new language, but also gives the students a look at the world and its differences. This is a valuable tool for school, work and community.
The school focuses on academics and does not offer sports, activities, or student clubs, which is a huge disappointment for students.
