My Students

Our students are active and creative. They learn through doing and exploring their environment. We integrate education with an emphasis on Fitness, Health, and Mountain Sports!

We connect kids to nature and the outdoors-- including the most amazing classroom for learning, Lake Tahoe.

Our school mission, in partnership with families, is to provide a high-achieving atmosphere to prepare our students to be educated, responsible citizens. We strive to foster a joy of learning and to shape responsible, respectful, hard-working students, who learn good study habits, in preparation for a successful life.

My Project

Take Sphero robots #BeyondCode with Sphero Edu activities. Sphero Edu incorporates collaborative STEAM activities with robotics and technology, giving students memorable, real-world learning experiences.

Activities are standards-aligned and can be teacher-led or self-guided, so the discovery can continue in any environment.

They’re also designed for users to progress with ease while continuing to take on new and exciting challenges.

Students learn the magic of coding with this Kano Harry Potter coding kit. The easy-to-assemble wand and included app provide over 70 creative challenges that teach children about coding with magic spells and mystical effects. This Kano Harry Potter coding kit is a fun and creative way to get kids interested in the magical world of computer science.

Students can learn about electric circuits and coding using the Snapino Snap Circuits.
