We are a small, rural, public charter school located in the westernmost county of the state. We are a Community of Learners who operate within an E-STEAM (Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) culture. Our mission is to prepare all of our students to become well rounded, productive, life-long learners in a 21st century global society. 


Great things are happening in our school and with your student! Visit the school, become involved in school activities and events, to better know what your student is involved in at school. You will be inspired by what you see!
