Daily Class Schedule
Upper Division Schedule
The upper division schedule was implemented at the beginning of the 2019-20 school year after 18 months of research and collaboration among faculty, department heads, and the upper division leadership team. This schedule format allows us both to optimize all that we know about adolescent learning and to better attend to our students’ wellbeing.
- Isn’t 70 minutes too long to focus on just one thing?
- If only 4 classes meet per day, does this mean students can now only take 4 classes?
- If students still take the same number of classes, how does this reduce homework?
- Won’t teachers just set double the homework each time to make up for the fewer meetings?
- How does changing to semesters impact final exams and reports?
- How does the change to semesters impact term dates and vacations?
- The semesters seem really uneven—is this a problem/issue?
- How will I know what schedule day it is?
- Why are there so many breaks scattered throughout the day?
- There are fewer meetings/minutes in this schedule for each class—how does this impact content-heavy AP classes?
- Aren’t math and languages best taught by meeting for short blocks every day?
