As students prepare to graduate and move consciously into the wider world, their curiosity deepens about how the world operates and what their place in it will be. World consciousness becomes the theme of the senior year.
Students study human development, and reflect on their own lives. They take classes in the global economy and the history of the twentieth century. Science includes ecology and the atomic structure of nuclear power. In math, students apply the tools of calculus and statistics to their world.
