The TEENS Program is for students that speak Spanish at home and have the desire to go through their middle school experience with students just like them. These are highly motivated students that want to learn to be proficient in both languages and learn more about their own cultures.

These students will be in advanced classes all day and their classes will be with other students in the TEENS and Magnet Programs.
