Guidance and C.A.S.E.
Every student is part of an Advisory Group led by a teacher (Advisor) that meets daily for meetings, notices, and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). PSHE helps students acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to manage their lives now and in the future. The wide-ranging curriculum prepares students to manage the most critical opportunities, challenges, and responsibilities they will face and helps them connect and apply their knowledge in all school subjects to practical, real-life situations.
Creativity, Action, Service, and Enrichment (C.A.S.E.) boosts students’ holistic learning, enabling them to develop new skills, take on new challenges, and perform community outreach. Every half-term, students may select one of five C.A.S.E. projects to pursue. They range from documentary filmmaking and MIT challenges, to Philosophy 101 and initiatives with local community organizations. Students work on projects, vertically in Middle and High School, on Friday afternoons during the last two lessons of the day.
