80分钟的课程和8:30的开始时间

Our 80-minute classes allow for deeper, more experiential learning. 除了讲座, teachers have time to hold in-class activities 和 follow up on those activities within the same class period. Classes are less rushed, allowing teachers 和 students time to fully dive into the subject material. With fewer classes per day (four instead of six) there is time saved in less commuting between classes, 安顿下来,放松下来. 必然地, 每天只有四节课, there is also less homework to navigate each night – students can better focus on the homework they do have, 让他们不那么疲惫和紧张.

Another benefit: The first class begins at 8:30am. 以前,上午8点开始上课. 周三早上9点才开始上课. 研究表明 青少年 长期睡眠不足, due to circadian rhythms that biologically keep them up later at night 和 put them at a disadvant年龄 first thing in the morning. "We felt this issue was worth acting on while we wait for other schools to catch up to the science,研究主任里克·托尼说 的侦探, a regional newspaper, which covered the epidemic of teen sleep deprivation.

Our dining hall is open for those who need to be on campus early due to public school district bus schedules – those students can still save time by eating breakfast in our dining hall instead of at home.
