At 十博体育平台, you can try them all. We believe that educating the whole child means offering students a diverse array of co-curriculars to enrich and expand upon a rigorous academic program. 户外教育, 马术, Woodshop, 机器人, 艺术 — these signature 机汇 experiences give students the opportunity try new things and discover new passions, no matter what your skill level.
十博最佳体育平台不断扩大 户外教育 Program gives all students a chance to explore and appreciate the nature, from morning hikes to 9-day, 100-mile backpacking trips. We start small and build our way up; elementary students camp with teachers close to campus, and middle and high school students venture further from home, choosing from weekend trips that go out at least once every month. 十博最佳体育平台登山, 河筏, 飞的鱼, snorkel and snowboard our way through some of The West’s most incredible places, teaching students the importance of things like perseverance, 团队合作, 和可持续性.
Horseback riding in our 马术项目 takes place not only in our two beautiful equestrian facilities, but also on the trails and beyond. Students in prekindergarten through 3rd grade spend time in the barn each week throughout the school year, and students from 4th through 12th grades can choose to ride as their sport. 机汇 is much more than a riding facility; our equestrians get to participate in horse camping, 盛装舞步诊所, 比赛, and Spring Break trips to locations like Ireland, 葡萄牙, 和蒙大拿州. And these students don’t just ride; they learn what it takes to truly care for and bond with these special animals.
在 woodshop, the lessons students learn go far beyond how to use a vice and pull saw. 耐心, 精度, and pride of workmanship are tools students carry with them long after they leave the Lower Campus. But there are plenty of woodshop lessons that are useful inside the classroom, too; abstract mathematics principles can suddenly come alive when you’re making a treasure chest with a 7-piece lid.
Even our youngest students get time in the woodshop each week. The fine motor skills they develop as 3-year-olds with sanding blocks are the basis for much bigger, more complex project — like sets for the spring musical. The founder of 十博体育平台, 内德约曼斯, so believed in the power of woodshop that it was one of the first buildings constructed on our Lower Campus.
The foundations of our 机器人程序 begin in the Lower Campus Makerspace and continue on to
十博最佳体育平台的高中. Elementary students learn the basics of coding and build upon those skills as they learn to design computer games, program drones and construct robots. Middle and high schoolers can join robotics teams, which compete as part of the FIRST Tech Challenge robotics 比赛. Students learn programming and engineering skills alongside computer science, physics and mathematics teachers, who help them cultivate strategies and develop 团队合作.
2021年8月, we opened an all-new Makerspace at our Upper Campus, which replaced the old 机器人/Flight Club lab. The new space is one of the 许多新建筑 at our Upper Campus, which include new girls’ dorms, dining hall, science labs, library, digital and media arts lab, as well as indoor and outdoor meeting spaces. 这16美元.5-million project has allowed us to expand our course offerings across all subjects, creating a community that is stronger than ever.
And all of this complements, of course, our challenging 学术项目. 在这里, small class sizes are the norm, and creative collaboration, hands-on projects and in-depth discussions help develop well-rounded adults who are lifelong learners. By the time 十博体育平台 students are ready to graduate they will have developed the academic strength, 这个角色, and the self-confidence to meet life’s future challenges in an ever-changing world.
