Exploratory Courses

Four periods per week are dedicated to students exploring non-academic interests. Students take at least one music course -- Band, Strings, or Choir -- which is every other day for a semester or the whole year. They also choose from a variety of course options such as Tech Core, Art, World Scholar’s Cup, Yearbook, Board Games, Team Sports, Elementary or Chinese Aid, or the ever-popular Broadcasting for the Shark Show. These courses help students develop their talents and explore interests that will benefit them in their future academic and personal lives.
