A Typical Day
In general, our day looks similar to this. Keep in mind, though, that we take many field trips and engage in many projects. Read this as a guide rather than an explicit schedule.
Students are divided into grade bands. They rotate through three academic classes (science, language arts/humanities, mathematics) in the morning. They engage in a number of electives in the afternoon.
8:30 - 9:30 Academic class 1
9:30 - 10:30 Academic class 2
10:30 - 11:00 Morning Meeting & Snack
11:00 - 12:00 Academic class 3
12:00 - 1:00 Lunch & Recess
1:00 - 2:00 Elective class* 1
2:00 - 3:00 Elective class* 2
3:00 - 3:30 Read Aloud / Project Planning
