How do you start your mornings? Sixth graders Jessa and Samantha start their day in our Art Room, letting their creativity flow! We begin every day with Diamond Time, an optional period for art, music, surfing, and much more. Or students can sleep in and be on campus for roll call classes at 9:15 am. Research shows that later start time for teens improves brain development and health. Learn more about our program at or come take a tour! #sbms #diamondtime #laterstarttime #teensneedsleep
