The school is focused on learning, staying fit, working together, and building a strong foundation of social, emotional, and academic success for all students. The May Street staff is an extremely talented and dedicated group of professionals, always striving to improve the educational experience of their students.
Art Week: From marimba lessons to ceramics, our PTO supports an intensive week-long program that includes parents and Arts in Education instructors.  The emphasis on the arts is evident throughout our school and throughout the year. Our Annual Art Auction and Teddy Webber Scholarship Dinner supplements arts education, and has produced several great student art installations over the years.
