Curriculum

Broadly, we have four major divisions of our curriculum, based on nominal age groups:

All students have free access to our vast collection of books (3,000 on display). Older students access our networked computers for class research and composing content for the student newspaper club. Most students have several periods not assigned to a subject, using these periods then for reading.

Beyond academic learning, our students learn leadership and service. Besides initiatives within classes, they participate in projects in the greater community. They organize events for charitable donations. Our outreach page tells the story.

Below we note how students may jump age boundaries, getting the most advanced classes that reward them.

Our academic curriculum is designed to meet the needs of advanced and motivated students, in a number of ways:

Outside of formal subjects, our students have other opportunities to grow academically. We have six after-school or lunch-time clubs: engineering, theater, yearbook, student newspaper, gardening, and American Sign Language. Students as young as in early kindergarten participate. Interesting projects also arise; students have come before the semester began to build PCs from scratch, learning about electronics, mechanical and electrical construction, operating systems, and user accounts.
