10th Grade

Having worked through black and white thinking, tenth graders become curious about process and transformation. The "how" interests them. How did things get to be like this?

The 10th grade curriculum meets and answers these questions. In Meteorology, they learn how weather is produced; in Physiology, a study of the endocrine system is a study of bodily processes. In Humanities, students study the development of the English language, and in a study of ancient Greece, the development of consciousness about the act of thinking itself.
