Humanities & Interdisciplinary

Our rigorous college preparatory curriculum requires students in each class to read, write, think, analyze, share, explore, solve, create, collaborate, present, discuss, debate, question, defend, negotiate, compromise, and most importantly, reflect upon themselves as learners. The goal of the school is to create a community of highly skilled students, lifetime learners, critical thinkers and socially responsible citizens who, upon graduation, will be prepared to succeed in college and beyond. This program requires students to complete an assignment as part of admissions. Soon, you will be able to upload your completed assignment through MySchools.
