Sabbagh Library & Literacy

“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” 

~ Dr. Seuss

Housed in the Learning Commons, the Sabbagh Library holds a large book collection and online database which students can discover on their own or with the help of the experienced librarian. Computers are also available for students to use and access information that is not available on the internet, all of which has been reviewed by experts in their respective fields. With these resources students will become architects of their own learning.

The Sabbagh Library offers support to all Middle School, Academy students as well as Upper Elementary School students.
