The Upper School curriculum focuses on essential questions to guide student-centered learning with grade appropriate material to create meaningful learning experiences for all students.
The Concept School’s students exceed the state requirements for graduation. There is a progression of courses that students follow before electives are offered, usually during sophomore, junior, and senior years. Students are challenged, and learning styles are embraced as students are guided toward success. The curriculum is solid in order to promote career- and college-readiness skills.
All students are required to take four credits of Reading, English, Math, Science, and Social Studies as recommended by TCS. One credit of Health is required. Physical Education is required once a week during all four years. There are several electives offered each year, including foreign languages, which change with student and teacher interest.
The lack of overwhelming pressure and fierce competition allows a comfortable atmosphere to exist here that is seldom seen in other schools.
