在目的, we believe the best learning happens when:
学生 are known, supported, stretched, and challenged.
小班授课, students who live and learn alongside their classmates, 老师, 和顾问, and a curriculum where every student is seen and heard enhance learning, create opportunities for strong and authentic connections, and enable students to encounter diverse perspectives through exposure to different authors, 的声音, 和观点, ensuring that every student is able to reach their fullest potential.
Learning is applied and authentic.
From student-designed xBlock electives and senior exhibitions, the academic program at 目的 is rooted in the principle that high-impact learning happens at the intersection of student-centered instruction, 批判性思维, 和反射. By engaging students in real, practical challenges facing our world—and offering them just the right level of support, we inspire kids to accomplish goals and master challenging material that initially felt beyond reach.
Spaces and places are built for adventurous minds.
Set on an expansive and inspiring campus landscape with proximity to the California coast, 目的’s academic facilities—both traditional classrooms and innovative maker spaces, including the School’s professional grade woodshop—are designed for and equipped with tools, both literal and figurative, that inspire creativity, 协作, and hands-on engagement with the material, whether that be chemical compounds, 古典文学, 或炭.
学生 find purpose and joy in their learning.
Like everything at 目的, learning is an adventure. 我们相信这就是原因, in a recent survey by Challenge Success, 目的 students report very high levels of affective engagement (meaning that they find both meaning/purpose and joy in their schoolwork). This is a notably high score for affective engagement, which is often a stumbling block for many schools, but one which we attribute to our commitment to 协作, 社区, 和有趣的.
