The LEP and ILEE use an exciting program with a creative approach to encourage students to learn entrepreneurship, technology, art, literacy, and math through custom superheroes, comic books, and trading card games. These methods are also employed to improved the development of their vocabulary, leadership, and oral communications/public speaking skills.

Students will learn the importance of anti-bullying, community service, and creative expression while understanding the value of respect and contributions to help others, including student inclusion.
