Welcome to Secondary Education!
The Secondary Education Department works directly with teachers and administrators in researching, aligning, developing, implementing and monitoring curriculum while focusing on best instructional practices in grades six through twelve. The Curriculum Frameworks are approved by the Board of Education and assist in ensuring the written curriculum is the taught and assessed curriculum while providing consistent academic and instructional expectations.
Middle schools meet the intellectual, social, ethical, and physical needs of 11-14 year old students through programs and instructional practices that focus on high academic expectations, interdisciplinary teams, and exploratory offerings.

High schools provide rigorous courses as students explore a variety of interests while preparing for graduation and post-secondary endeavors. All students are encouraged to take at least one Advanced Placement (AP®) level course, select a Diploma Path, or apply for Career Academies. Learn more: Curriculum Handbook and Registration Guide.
Other programs at the secondary level include: Mini-Magnets, Montessori, International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme, English Language Learners, High Ability Learners, Special Education and Summer School.
