The 3 A's
TEP aims to develop our students in the 3 A's — Academics, Arts, & Athletics — through a rich, deep, and rigorous curriculum. This means development in the following three areas:
► Students develop core literacy, language, and math skills, which are integrated into all academic content areas. TEP middle school students take daily classes in ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
► Students develop artistic discipline and competency by studying music theory and performing music in a variety of ensembles. Students take music class every day at every grade level. Students also participate in a variety of selective arts groups including visual arts and dance.
► Students develop physical movement and athletic skills designed to promote lifelong enjoyment of physical activity. Students take PE classes every day at every grade level. Students also participate in over a dozen interscholastic sports teams.
