Quality Day & Boarding School Programs for Students in Grades 6-12:
The Hun School provides a diverse community that places a high value on a creative and rigorous traditional college preparatory curriculum in a structured environment.
Good literature, because of its thematic richness and levels of meaning, as well as the moral and ethical ambiguities it often expresses, is the ideal medium through which students can learn to analyze and synthesize complex information and form meaningful intellectual decisions and opinions.
Justifying those findings effectively and succinctly, as well as manifesting depth of learning through a variety of well crafted presentations, both written and oral, is the primary goal of the English curriculum.
History is taught as an interdisciplinary subject that bridges the humanities, arts, and sciences. Its study exposes students to a broad framework of historic, geographic, social, and cultural experiences, encompassing Western and non-Western materials.
Students learn both independently and cooperatively, developing skills in problem solving and decision-making. The department presents history as a means of exploring vital questions of both historic and contemporary relevance.
The atmosphere in math classrooms fosters active student participation in the learning process. Students are encouraged to think creatively while constructing ideas and solving problems. The Upper School years continue to build upon these techniques while incorporating calculators and computers into the more advanced courses.
Science, the study of the natural world, provides a sense of order and wonder in the universe. It relies on creativity, curiosity, and healthy skepticism. Developments in science and technology, such as nuclear energy, genetic engineering, and organ transplants, result in complex social issues that must be intelligently addressed.
As a result, students need to have a clear understanding of science and its methods. Laboratory periods are included in all science courses to provide students with the hands-on experience necessary to deal with scientific questions.
Arts education teaches that the inspiration of an artist springs from the sum of life experiences, and from the various frameworks of history and values in our backgrounds. It is important for students to develop an understanding and appreciation for the arts within their own, as well as in other, cultures.
The arts contribute to increased self-awareness and one’s own capacity for contribution to the larger community of humanity. Fine Arts courses provide access to both practical and hands-on experiences, and an opportunity to learn through reading, observing, and writing.
In a shrinking world, the study of a foreign language is critical to the intellectual and cultural development of all students. The Foreign Language curriculum is designed to develop students’ communication skills in the language being studied and to acquaint them with the cultural contributions of other societies.
Toward this goal, the Department offers a series of courses, some compulsory and some elective, in French, Spanish, Chinese, and Latin. French and Spanish classes are conducted in the target language at all levels.
The computer science curriculum is based on the belief that technology is an integral part of our students’ lives as well as their academic work. The curriculum includes computer programming, computer graphics, digital video production, interactive media, business applications, E-mail, and the Internet.
Hun students are taught to use the computer as a means of gathering information, expressing ideas, and exploring the larger world. All courses challenge students to creatively apply the computer to real-life experiences.
