Community Service is an integral part of the academic and values program of our school.
Service-Learning is a teaching methodology that enriches learning by engaging students in meaningful service through careful integration with established academic curricula. Authentic service-learning:
STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM SERVICE LEARNING BECAUSE:
Every year, each class in the Primary School chooses a goal from the 17 United Nations Sustainability Goals to focus on throughout the year. These projects allow our students the opportunity to learn about global issues and how they relate to our local communities. The project goals are pre-assigned to each grade and are tailored to align to the grade level curriculum, guaranteeing that each student will see different Sustainability Goals though out their time in Primary. When they can, projects are focused on working with the community during some point of the year, and all projects are shown off at the Sustainability Fair at the end of the year.
Examples of sustainability projects in the Lower School are:
In the Middle and High Schools service learning in individual and group projects is part of the curriculum. At the beginning of each year, students sign up for projects and can also become trained as project leaders. We believe that education extends outside the classroom, and that extra curricular activities are an integral part of building a positive school community. We offer a variety of student programs and projects to help our students become more thoughtful, open-minded, self-reliant, responsible, and creative people, such as the National Honor Society.
