The Hague School will follow an alternating MW/TTh schedule; each day consists of three core courses and an elective. Fridays are flex days to permit student/teacher conferences, guest speakers, and/or community outreach. Our campus will remain open after school for students wishing to expand their academic interests or participate in extracurricular activities such as clubs, sports, music, etc.
Each student’s first year will require the completion of a practical, intensive introduction to effective research. Students will complete survey courses in foreign languages, from which they can select a language of specialization for their final two years.
Emphasis on Critical Thinking
Critical thinking and self-directed, conference style dialogue facilitated by a master teacher will be the foundation of each course. In all courses, students will learn to construct, advance, evaluate, and critique arguments across disciplines and to apply their knowledge to real world situations.
The first two years of the core curriculum will be designed to equip ninth- and tenth-graders with prerequisite skills for the college preparatory program offered in their final two years.
Daily instruction and the classroom environment will support students as they develop both disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge, garner understanding that strengthens resiliency, and prepare to engage in today’s world.
Our curriculum is designed provide an exemplary education in a diverse environment, fostering confident expression, collaborative and experiential learning, and positive engagement.
