Upper School (9-12)
Upper School students are curious and disciplined. At this level, teachers challenge them to reach beyond their intellectual comfort zone.They’re ready to stretch their abilities, take risks, and explore different perspectives. Motivated and ambitious, they learn to study and research independently, to communicate ideas in a meaningful way, and to develop the social and interpersonal skills of cooperation, teamwork, and leadership. And because they’re ready, we give them the space to think independently, critically and creatively. With this blend of freedom and responsibility, Upper School students thrive.
The teachers push you hard, but they make sure you get it. They want you to succeed - 11th grade student
