“A Sense of Place.”
Our small learning community is designed for 28 freshmen and will provide a tightly knit community, integrated curriculum, outdoor adventure, and opportunities to grow as leaders.
All students will share some common classes and teachers. The
content and standards will be the same as our traditional courses;
however, in the small learning community program, the teachers and
students will work together to explore common themes and demonstrate
their knowledge in some cross-curricular projects.
Students in the Small Learning Community will be enrolled together in the same English and history course. We are working on incorporating biology into the program. If possible, students will take a specialty PE which, in addition to the traditional content, will focus on leadership, character, and team building games.
Although not required, we encourage students in the Small Learning Community to enroll in Art Spectrum, Living Skills, and Spanish as their electives, as those teachers will incorporate our common themes into their courses.
