Fitness: Fitness is a physical education class, held outside when the weather is right. Students rotate through different stations that get kids moving, building up their endurance and strength, and working as a team.
Foreign Language: Students learn Spanish through speaking/listening and teacher-designed performance tasks. Students can also learn French or Mandarin at their own pace using computer software under the direction of the classroom teacher.

Entrepreneurship: Students take a small business idea to market and make real money. In this class, students learn to pitch to an investor, create a business plan, build a prototype, budget and project profit, and bring a product to market!
