The Upper School brought the year to a close with the annual Discovery Term, a two-week opportunity to investigate areas outside of the regular curriculum. By immersing themselves in learning for its own sake, students have the opportunity to test new ideas while breaking out of familiar ways of thinking. Students who commit to the goals of the course and actively participate acquire new and enduring understandings from the experiences and risks they undertake.
Students took part in classes as varied as Tech in Medicine, Social Justice, Exploring Programming, Physics Team, Kenyan Running, War Strategy and Fantasy Writing.
In Discovery Term, students learned but also had a little fun, as demonstrated by this Sierpinski Tetrahedron, made up of 64 individual tetrahedrons by the Math-a-Licious class.
