For Students [+]

Our goal as a staff is to create an environment where students, parents, and community members work in concert with each other to develop a culture that maintains academic excellence and a cooperative atmosphere. We believe the programs offered at the 8th Grade Center are designed toward high academic standards. We encourage students to take an active role in creating a school community that values each individual and promotes the success of everyone.

Please note: additional information will be made available as the year progresses. Specific dates, times and advisors will be added during the first few weeks of school.
