Concern for all environments that impact learning and achievement is a core characteristic of San Miguel's programming. The small school population (16 students per grade) creates a structured and nurturing environment with high expectations and rigorous academics. Vigorous academics focus on high achievement, and caring adults address individual needs and close academic deficits.
Our model leads to students making great academic strides while also developing a strong sense of community and personal responsibility. Students leave San Miguel with the tools for charting their educational and vocational path and a vision for their own future that is crucial for their transition from school to whatever career they choose to pursue.
Parental involvement is a key element of our program. Parents and families consistently meet our expectation of 100% attendance at each of three parent/teacher conferences during the year. The caring and sensitivity of our staff and faculty builds the trust and commitment from families that creates a support system critical to the success of our students.

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
