The rigor of our curriculum is evident. In addition to an advanced math curriculum that ends in Algebra I (or Geometry for accelerated students) and a science program that integrates technology and theory, mathematics and the experimental, SCTS students study two languages (Latin and Spanish), Logic, Public Speaking, World Politics, Vocabulary and Grammar. Significant time is also given to the arts: Painting, Drawing, Singing, and Drama.
None of this rigor, however, would succeed if our students were disengaged. Our teaching style, then, is heavily conversational. Much time is given to student generated discussion. We want to create a collegial atmosphere where students help one another formulate ideas. This is done, not only through Socratic seminars, which are conversational in nature, but also through a pedagogical methodology rich in debate.
