Our curriculum is designed to foster deep thinking and collaboration. Beyond required courses, students take classes in visual and performing arts curricula and choose an arts focus-area in the 10th grade. Students have the opportunity to take Advance Placement courses and to complete internships. By senior year, students use their artistic experiences and learning to address a challenge or strengthen an asset in their community.
At HUM IV, advisory is called Ensemble. This daily class supports students and adults as they practice self-awareness and interdependence. In Ensemble, students activate their understanding of our Habits of the Graduate, make meaning of and set goals related to their Rights and Responsibilities, and discuss Humanist issues and dilemmas. Students complete portfolios that demonstrate their work and progress in our Habits of the Graduate (CREATE) and present for review at the end of the year.
Students will have access to campus sports teams and after school activities. Specific clubs will be determined based on student interests.
At Humanities IV, we believe that an excellent education prepares students to emerge from high school knowing how to be successfully independent and interdependent.
We create a culture where students:
-Feel supported to execute their rights as students
-Commit to the responsibilities that come with those rights
-Hold themselves and others accountable to logical consequences and ”making things right” when harm is caused
