School Notes:

    • Our unique Module System fosters deep learning and innovative teaching in all disciplines. Classes are an hour and a-half long, and students concentrate intensely on three subjects at a time. Our curriculum is diverse and interdisciplinary, combining demanding academics with extensive offerings in the visual and performing arts.
    • Students are encouraged to explore new educational experiences and areas of study, and to be proactive in planning their academic schedules. We offer 300 courses. No two student schedules are alike. Each student works with an advisor and the Academic Office to create a unique academic schedule that balances personal interests with college expectations and the school's requirements for graduation. Ultimately, each student schedule aims to provide balance, rigor, and stimulation throughout the year.
