What makes our 上学校 academic experience unique?
上学校 students complete year-long, grade-level research projects led by collaborative teams of educators across disciplines.
The Humanities model fuses traditional history and English classes together. Our Humanities faculty incorporate team teaching and cross-curricular material into their courses. Students both study and write about historical texts and events in an environment that encourages discourse and collaboration.
