  • Individualized Learning Plans, customized for each student in consultation with parents/guardians.
  • The internationally benchmarked Cambridge curriculum which prepares students to be globally competitive.
  • Personalized instruction and project-based learning.
  • The direct connection to ASU which enables college and career exploration through visits to ASU, professors as guest speakers at our campus, internships and more.
