This is NOT a complete list of school events. 

Did you know? 

The 7th Grade TOC project is a bioclimatic green house.  Bioclimatic architecture consists of knowing how to make the most of the conditions of a site and its environment (climate geography and morphology).  The main objective of the bioclimatic greenhouse is to be able to plant and harvest earlier (you can save 1 or even 2 months) without using any external energy source. Pretty cool, right?


By using refillable water bottles, our staff and students have saved a total of  87,670  plastic bottles from the landfill.
