A demanding, dynamic, and experiential learning experience
Students in our Upper and Middle schools receive an education characterized by high expectations, demanding coursework, and a full immersion into the joy of learning. Alongside collaborative classmates and dynamic teachers who inspire and motivate, students dive into a curriculum that challenges them to articulate complex ideas, find bold solutions, and build strong leadership skills.
Our approach pushes students to always take their understanding one step further and put their knowledge into action. Instead of only memorizing formulas and algorithms, math students provide written explanations to illustrate an algebraic expression. They use the case study method to better understand questions related to identity and injustice. We encourage creativity and supplement our coursework through the thoughtful integration of educational technology, such as our 1:1 iPad program—which helps spark inventive projects across a variety of platforms, such as podcasts and animations—and place a strong emphasis on learning through a global lens. This carefully designed academic environment inspires students to perform at the highest level, so that they graduate prepared to excel in college and in the world.
