Our responsibility extends beyond the mere transmission of knowledge and skills within specialized content areas. In addition to the academic objectives that we support our students to achieve in the classroom, we also encourage them to learn about the greater world around them, along with their own place and role in this world.
We encourage our students to accomplish this task experimentally so that they can learn by doing and reflecting in addition to the normal practice of study. It is our belief that through greater investigation into the many ways lives are lived and experienced a sense of responsibility and curiosity is naturally borne out.
We extend the pupil responsibility from learning how to be a good student in the classroom, into learning how to be a good member of the overall community and a good citizen to the world. And we make this part and parcel of our curriculum, of our student learning objectives and our overall school mission.
