Upper School

Forms 9 - 12

Upper School Science Lab

Upper School students are empowered through rigorous academics and intellectual discourse in a supportive environment where they are known—by faculty, each other, and in turn, themselves.

Students feel free to express their individual viewpoints, participate in an open dialogue, and develop their identities as independent thinkers and learners.

  • Biotechnology laboratories.
  • Digital filmmaking and sound editing software.
  • Electronics projects that integrate hardware with basic programming using Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
