The St. Paul’s Episcopal School curriculum charts the intellectual growth of our students, from the self-contained classrooms of the Lower School to the subject-specific classrooms of the Sixth Grade & Middle School, from concrete thinkers to abstract analyzers.
Informing every aspect of our curriculum are the values of our founders, who believed that keen analytical skills, a depth of knowledge, and a generous heart are essential qualities of an educated citizen.
What you cannot always see among the curriculum bullet points are the interconnections with our three core educational principles.
- First, as students engage with the rigorous curriculum, they also grow as fearless learners who know the value of a challenge and the confidence that comes from solving complex problems.
- Second, the service learning projects they do deepen their understanding of their math, science, or social studies lessons and demonstrate first hand the importance of what they are learning.
- And finally, their learning is deeper and more sophisticated thanks to the diverse viewpoints represented in their classrooms.
