Small class sizes allow for student voices to be heard, and students feel comfortable in their own skin. Individual expression is the norm, as is showing empathy and advocacy for others.
With weekly Community Meetings and daily interactions with Crews, students have opportunities to celebrate, share and grow together. Students also regularly head off campus to engage with the outside community, whether it be presenting work before lives audiences, going on a field study or meeting with experts. As much as anything else, this community engagement furthers your child’s education and enables them to gain real life experiences and lessons, teaching them how to be active participants and citizens in the world.
If your child is also an athlete, we continued to put together programs to fit their interests and to create an Athletic Program is to enrich their lives. Active participation in athletics teaches students the benefits of exercise and the importance of goal setting, fun and dedication. School character values taught in the classroom are further developed and strengthened through athletic participation. These and other indelible lessons gained through athletic involvement benefit students long after the season ends.
Clubs are driven by both school and student interest and provide incredible leadership and engagement opportunities for all students. To date, +Impact School Clubs have included: Student Council, Psychology Club, Literary Club, Model UN and STEAM Club.
After-school clubs and activities offer exciting chances for students to explore, have fun and get physically fit in the natural surroundings. You will find +Impact School students on the trails, rocks and mountains while hiking, climbing and biking in this world-class environment.
A day in the life of an +Impact School student is both personalized and engaging.
Each student experiences a mixture of personalized learning time, teacher instruction, project time, Crew and adventure. Each school week is designed to ensure students get the guidance, support and flex time they need to enjoy school, maximize time on site and learn something new every day.
The school follows a traditional 36 week school year, starting in late August and finishing in mid-June, with camps and other programs offered during summer and school breaks.
Our blog and media detail the work of our school. We highlight student work and and connect what they are doing with what’s happening in the world. Blog posts are written by teachers, staff and students and provide evidence for the positive impact the school has inside and outside the classroom walls.
