Adroit


About the Program

With the 2016-17 school year, all of our elementary, middle and high school students will be introduced to passion-based gifted classes we call ADROIT. Combined with our gifted instruction, our Adroit students, who are already clever or skillful using the hands or mind, will learn to develop a process for producing creative solutions to even the most complex challenges they tackle. We have begun a partnership with the D.School at Stanford University where our Adroit vision coincides with the the work of this prestigious graduate program. We have designed new MakerSpaces in each of our buildings where students will create through Hands On Minds On learning experiences that align with our values of gifted education.
