Special Note About Curriculum

It should be noted that your child will be exposed to some visual material and language that is sensitive. It is always presented with a purpose and it is done in an educational and professional manner.

Learning Environment

Along with the static classroom setting, your child will participate in "hands on" activities, such as learning how to fingerprint and how RADAR works.

One day during the week, at no extra expense, your child will go on a field trip to Washington, DC, or New York City.
