Exploratory: A main focus in middle school is exposing students to a wide range of subjects, interests, concepts and activities so that as they progress through high school and beyond, they have had time to explore and experience as many aspects of learning as possible. While high school offers “electives”, we believe Middle Schoolers are too young to have to choose, so each class will spend 3 hours a week for a block of time in:

  • Home Economics (both cooking and sewing)
  • Technology Ed. (woodworking and metalworking)
  • Music (in addition to the optional band, strings, and choir ensembles)
  • Visual Arts
  • Outdoor Education

Depending on the Advisory Team structures, classes will either have longer rotation blocks through these three Exploratories or have shorter rotations.
