As one of our students put it, we don’t do “sitting-down, raise-your-hand” learning.
Rather than simply diffusing information, our teachers give students the tools to form and express their own ideas, turning them into voracious learners. And that’s not the only way we’re unconventional.
A common thread of playfulness and joy runs through each and every classroom. English classes don’t just read Macbeth, they hold a spirited grade-wide contest for best enactment of a scene. Teachers test grammar knowledge game show-style. And physics students covet the Einstein Awards, where they’re given the chance to use their knowledge of theory to explain how the universe works.
