At the heart of our schedule you will find freedom and flexibility with a harmonious blend of structure and rigor. Our students have a firm daily schedule, but every day is different because of the broad offerings of new subject matter and opportunities to explore provided by our projects and amazing Design Studio.
A typical school day starts with an inspiring Socratic discussion and morning meeting, followed by significant blocks time for students to work on core skills and a morning recess period. Students have flexibility to move about, take breaks, and generally utilize the space to learn where and how they are most comfortable. The goal is for students to govern their time and effort to best support their personal learning.
