We use a variety of high-quality educational resources throughout the school. Our curriculum is aligned to the Missouri Learning Standards and encompasses Expeditionary Learning, Project Based Learning, Project Lead the Way, and Blended Learning.

Our co-teaching model allows teachers to work with small groups of students on a particular skill/concept at their level.  Other students may be collaborating with their peers or working on an online platform based on student need.   We also offer reading tutoring through our full-time interventionist that works with students who need additional support.  Our full-time enrichment teacher works with students in grades 3rd -8th that need a more challenging curriculum and our full-time special education teacher and English Language Learners teacher work with students with identified needs.  During our daily Extended Learning Program students who need remediation receive additional small group instruction while students who need acceleration participate in enrichment activities.

We use the Central Library as our school library, Case Park as our playground. Our students also visit the Folly Theater, Quality Hill Playhouse, Science City, City Hall and other downtown businesses as an extension of the classroom curriculum.
