To open in 2018-19, the Upper School will accept motivated students in a lab school where teachers learn alongside the students. Students will conduct in depth real world project work in work in two cohorts; 9/10th grade and 11th/12th grade. Our program will result in a fully certified traditional high school transcript and our students will be able to excel in college and life. Not only will our students be prepared for college success, we ensure they will be sough after by colleges and employers as prepared, responsible, curious and excited to learn.
Our upper school will not have traditional discrete subject matter learning. Instead, all necessary course work will be implemented into a unique project grid and accomplished with teaching coaches. The school will be organized around a culture of inquiry rather than constrained by traditional schedules, lockers, bells and busy work. Students will learn from experts in the real fields that their projects address. Projects will attempt to solve real world problems using the Stanford Design Process. To facilitate this, The Delta School has developed a unique project requirement grid not found anywhere else, as well as a unique scheduling model that is flexible and adaptable for each project.
Our students will receive in-depth, personalized college counseling that begins the first year of the upper school and advances until the right match happens or students decide to find success outside of the academic environment.
