The staff includes over sixty well-trained professionals teaching academics, special education and such specialties as art, music, physical education, ESL (English as a Second Language), Gifted education and Japanese culture. A school nurse, two counselors, a trained school psychologist, and two speech pathologists are also available to attend to student needs. Joan K.
