In Upper School, students build on their foundation in order to stretch themselves to the next level. Social Emotional Learning continues to be an integral part of everything we do at ACE. In addition, an effective gifted curriculum embeds grit, intrinsic motivation, divergent thinking, and self-efficacy into the year. Students are challenged to reflect on their emotional intelligence as well as their intellect.
The robust experience focuses on leadership skills and design thinking. Our small classes (no more than 12 students) allow teachers to create meaningful relationships with the students, enabling a collaborative, thoughtful and respectful classroom environment.
