Challenging Academics

Balance of traditional and innovative curriculum

Authentic student learning comes  from within - driven by a student’s passions, interests, and innate curiosity. Therefore, our academic programming allows students to challenge conventional thinking, be change agents for their local and global communities, explore multiple perspectives, and, ultimately, learn and grow from and with each other. This approach cultivates students’ creative and curious minds and encourages them to develop a sense of responsibility, a growth mindset, empathy, resilience, critical thinking, and voice. Through a balance of traditional and innovative approaches, our students are actively involved in their learning, and are encouraged to build on new knowledge and ideas. This blend encourages independence, while giving our students guidance and support. Examples include:

Commitment to developing confident readers, writers, and problem-solvers
Place-Based Learning using the campus as a classroom
Integrated projects in math, science, social studies, and English
