All instruction is given in English. The curriculum also emphasizes the use of technology, problem-solving, and authentic assessment. The full IB Program is offered for students in grades 11 and 12. A full range of extra-curricular activities is available. The School is accredited by AdvancED (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and North Central Association), the Council of International Schools, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.
