Our Program and Curriculum

The school’s curriculum is designed to develop young leaders who will rise to serve their community as they grow. The academic program will feature an optional two-way dual language immersion program (Korean/English and Spanish/English) and will emphasize technology across all academic disciplines. Students will be required to complete a digital portfolio that highlights their academic accomplishments. The combination of strong leadership development and oral presentation skills offered at Rise Kohyang Middle School will help students succeed in high school and college as well as in the competitive job market after college.

Our school also provides students with opportunities to expand their education in service learning, technology, college preparation, and languages. The rigorous program will challenge students to give back to the community as they develop into leaders. Life Experience Lessons (LELs) require students to develop an educational project that will culminate with a rewarding trip outside of the classroom. We believe that providing students with experiential learning opportunities will allow them to enhance their education with real-life encounters if they are going to succeed in college and life.
