Small class sizes and access to resources enable Upper School students to take learning to the next level. Students utilize iPads, Google Docs and our leading-edge Healey Center to work collaboratively and experiment with concepts.
The Upper School Curriculum
Through their service to the school and the surrounding communities, and by sharing their own experiences, the Upper School students learn to lead. A rigorous curriculum focuses on study skills and develops students into capable independent learners and thinkers. Skills such as self-advocating, prioritizing, risk-taking, creative thinking and public speaking are emphasized to provide students with the tools they need to be successful after they graduate Derby.
