Topic: Academics

Lani Stern - Alumnus   (Jan 23, 2018)

I wish that the school had been as progressive when I attended as it is today. Maker's labs, 3D printing, website building, graphic design, regular field trips and of course exceptional classroom teaching. Yes, some teachers stuck to the textbook, which is more physically draining than any activity, but on the whole, teachers were engaging and knew their stuff. Learning algebra on a white board is one thing, it's another to use humans in an interactive example. The student body were appropriately competitive. After all, these are the children of successful people that have learned a high work ethic that the school helps to nurture. That isn't to say that there isn't balance, I believe that I have alluded to that several times, but there's no question that the academics at the school are second to none.
