House System

The goal of the House System is to provide an opportunity for students and faculty to interact across grade levels. In doing so, the school community benefits from positive peer pressure, increased school spirit, and healthy competition.

Throughout the school year, students earn points for their houses based on good behavior, special accomplishments, and more. Since each house includes kids from every grade, it fosters a sense of community throughout the school.
