Programs and Curriculum
In addition to our California Core Curriculum, we also have a ESL ( English As Second Language ) program for our students since for the majority of the students’ mother tongue is not English. This program is designed to strengthen our students’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills including specific skills classes such as note taking.
Physical Education Program
Physical Education and our students’ health conditions are what we value greatly here at our school. We believe that if students don’t have healthy bodies, they won’t be able to perform well academically. Therefore, eating healthy is also one of our main concerns. We have physical education classes at our school every day. Students can choose between basketball, soccer, yoga, aerobics, and fitness alternating Mondays, Wednesdays, and Tuesdays, Thursdays.
Since we are a boarding school, we have also designed club time for students to fully explore their interests. On Mondays and Wednesdays, we have club counselors to guide the students in clubs such as newsletter, yearbook, Hope club ( teaching English to local elementary school students ), boxing and home economics to provide opportunities for students to experiment and discover. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we bring in our sports clubs such as diablo, table tennis fitness, basketball and badminton. We emphasize the importance of team work and sportsmanship in these clubs.
