The Upper School’s daily schedule is a reflection of the School’s philosophy that “the transmission of knowledge, the encouragement of curiosity, the development of rational thought, and the cultivation of responsible, honorable behavior are the great ends of education.”
Our schedule includes extended class periods allowing students to explore deeply and work carefully on just a few topics each day, as well as provides opportunities to engage substantially in problem-based learning, experiments, off-campus experiential learning, and more.
Scheduled time for faculty development and collaboration, Chapel, club time, community time, and faculty office hours are also a feature of our Upper School schedule. This dedication to community and collaboration not only encourages positive and significant work, but peer-to-peer and student-teacher relationships as well.
