Academic Departments

History

The History department engages students in expeditions and case studies that support students developing an in-depth knowledge of history while also applying their knowledge to current events. Students act as historians and researchers, writing PBATs and presenting their work to an authentic audience.

English

The English Department stresses reading, writing, and listening. Students read texts for meaning, make connections between texts, and explore how texts relate to their lives and the world around them. The English Department supports all students in becoming lifelong readers, and teaches students not only how to write analytical essays, but to write across multiple genres and speak confidently about literature.

Last year, as part of EL Education¬†selected 18 exceptional Better World Projects from 50 submissions by student-teacher teams across the country. From documenting the lives of immigrants in their communities, to initiating courageous conversations with city council members about police violence, these projects became shining examples of what can happen when student learning serves a larger purpose. See our students’ incredible project here.

Math

Instead of having students simply memorize procedures, the Math Department challenges students to grapple with non-routine problems and creatively apply the mathematics they have learned to complete interesting projects. Through collaboration and dialogue, students construct an understanding of mathematics and recognize that it is a powerful tool. Our challenging curriculum moves from algebra through calculus.

Science

The science department engages students in hands-on laboratory work and fieldwork where students can learn the techniques and approaches that real scientists use through experimentation. Course offering reflect that diversity of disciplines in the natural, biological, and physical sciences.

Electives

Students will have the opportunity to choose from several elective courses of their choice, many of which will offer credits towards their high school graduation. We also offer AP Human Geography, AP Environmental Science, AP US History, and AP Calculus.

Fall 2018 electives include:

  • Photography
  • Dance
  • Robotics
  • Weight Training
  • Poetry
  • Screen Printing
  • Computer Science
  • Theater
