Videos From Students

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to allow visitors to our school.  Instead, our students have created some Video-logs (Vlogs) as a personal sharing of our school campus and school life.  We have selected three videos below which we believe will give you a brief insight to our campus and school life.  Enjoy!
