Scholars participate in project-based learning activities in which they "learn by doing" to create a weekly video news broadcast and monthly school newspaper in their publication teams.
Through the performing arts scholars build real-world skills including confidence, collaboration, creativity, problem solving, and observation, that can help them in all areas of life.
Art Studio I is an intro to the career of illustration. In this course we examine the different materials and techniques professional artists use to create art that can be used for publication, conceptual design and graphic purposes. Studio II is an exploration of the creative side of fine art, where students attempt to access their creative potential by exploring techniques that fine artists use.
Each year, upper class scholars work together to learn and utilize graphic design concepts to build a 100-page senior yearbook that captures memories of the last for years for the graduating class.
Scholars engage with literature through discussions in student-led Socratic Seminars and through writing. ELA classes have publishing parties to discuss the writing process and present their finished work.
Scholars engage with past and current events and topics through various projects and presentations including debates. Scholars utilize the courtroom for debates, as well as for Mock Trials
Academic and social growth is important both in and outside of the classroom. Humanities III takes pride in promoting school culture through a variety of activities and events that are publicized and reflected upon in our Weekly ELITE News Broadcast and Monthly Newspaper. Scholars are encouraged to get involved and practice the skills they learn inside of their classrooms through real-world applications.
