Upper School Curriculum
|Current course offerings>|
At Hathaway Brown Upper School, we challenge students to excel and encourage them to be intellectually active, creative and self-directed. Students and teachers work as partners, collaborating both formally and informally to establish a vibrant educational community that values academic curiosity and fosters confidence and initiative. This positive atmosphere for learning is the result of mutual respect, constructive challenge, individual attention, and disciplined support for the life of the mind.
In classrooms and laboratories, faculty use a variety of teaching methods to sharpen critical thinking skills and accommodate different learning styles. Many courses are conducted as seminars in which students gain experience in precise reading, listening and speaking. The curriculum is diverse and flexible. Elective options increase in the junior and senior years to provide special opportunities to pursue or deepen an interest.
Graduation requirements are comprehensive and rigorous. Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors classes allow students to progress at a rate appropriate to their abilities and interests. Our approach to traditional academic disciplines encourages girls to explore all areas of learning, and the extraordinary enrichment opportunities that HB provides ensure an uncommonly exciting educational experience.
