We strive to meet students at their particular stage of development, both in the instructional approach and the curriculum, in order to assist students in developing their ability to think, create and do meaningful work in the world. Our students become active learners and creative, flexible thinkers with the confidence to face the challenges of our complex, interconnected world.
Our academic calendar is oriented around a rotating, main lesson block schedule. These intensive classes enable students to explore all elements of a particular topic or concept in the various academic disciplines. The main lesson blocks alternate every three to four weeks and allow students to engage and work deeply in one subject area.
Math, English, Science, French, and History follow a more typical track class schedule and continue all year. In addition to the core academics, all students participate in Technology, Drama, Choir, Music Ensemble (optional), Visual and Practical Arts, Movement, PE, and an alternating selection of “Options” classes.
