Academics-- ARTS & SCIENCES in Action
Our teaching encourages students to EXPLORE how subjects relate to one another, helping them to make CONNECTIONS that spark inquiry and deepen understanding.
We offer a comprehensive curriculum covering the core subjects of language arts, math, science, and social studies, along with additional disciplines such as Spanish, art, music, library, digital literacy, and physical education.
We apply a cross-curricular approach to learning in order for students to better grasp concepts that span different subjects—for example, the links between art and history, math and science, literature and social studies. This enables students to gain a deeper understanding of relationships between subjects and strengthens their ability to identify new connections in the world around them.
We incorporate the use and study of technology in our curriculum and make extensive use of our natural campus setting to support appreciation and respect for the environment.
Under the leadership of division heads, students are able to maintain inclusive academic schedules that still provide time for the outdoors, recess, clubs, and extracurricular activities. Students are able to learn in a variety of ways, allowing both academic and social development. A focus on the whole child—including physical, academic, social, and emotional dimensions—is emphasized throughout the curriculum.
