We offer classes that you would expect in a good high school - math, English, history, science, spanish, art, and electives. What makes our instructional program unique is that all courses are project-based, meaning that students learn content and skills in a course, and then apply what they learned to a project that has real-world relevance. We the People also uses curricular materials that aren’t typically integrated into traditional school curricula, such as the United Nation’s 17 Global Goals for sustainability, and curricula on community organizing and environmentalism.
Throughout their four years, students will participate in advisory once or twice per week. Advisory is a place for students to develop meaningful relationships with each other and with a caring adult, providing a safe space for the development of empathy, understanding, and emotional maturity. Advisory will be communications-based, developing students’ capacity to speak and advocate for themselves and to practice deliberation and debate. Advisory provides an additional vehicle for personalization, enabling students to explore content and topics that are of interest to them.
