The College has an average class size of 20 students taught by subject area specialists. In many cases, students enjoy the advantage of continuing to learn with the same subject area specialist teacher over a period of several years. In our close knit community, students, teachers and staff create an incredibly powerful environment of trust and respect that encourages ongoing learning in academics, arts, athletics and citizenship. Students are active participants in classes. They are strongly encouraged to speak up when they have a good idea or a question. Students know that their teachers are receptive and approachable outside of class. They also know that their teachers will approach them if they see an issue or a concern in order to provide support.
