The Grade School Unit introduces students to the Southridge educational experience. During their stay in the Grade School, students master the foundational skills of reading, writing, speaking and calculating through the curricular framework of Understanding by Design (UbD) that is applied to all subject areas. Instruction is done through the use of both teacher and student centric learning activities with emphasis on teaching for mastery and understanding. This holistic academic program is complemented by a personal formation program that helps students form good habits that become the basis for the development of their character.learn more
The High School Unit builds on and refines the academic and personal formation programs of the Grade School. High School students are trained to acquire clarity, order and precision in thought, skill in analysis, judgment and expression, and the ability to reflect on their learning experiences. These goals of education are measured using performance-based assessments. Student engagement in school is also widely promoted through active participation in clubs and other extra-curricular activities. With the help of their mentors, students are able to turn good habits into lifelong virtues which they practice as they face the intricacies of teenage life.learn more
