Academic Program

In each of our three divisions, Lower (K-5), Middle (6-8) and Upper (9-12), we have created a developmentally appropriate program that is challenging, inspires a love of learning and augments the many academic and interpersonal strengths our diverse student body bring to class each day.

Lower School Program:

The Lower School academic program provides a strong foundation of concepts and skills in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, science, art, foreign language, library, music, physical education and technology. In all curricular areas, concepts are introduced at the concrete level and become more complex and detailed as the student’s knowledge and reasoning abilities grow. Teachers integrate hands on activities, simulations, field trips, service learning, and multimedia projects into the academic program. Basic skills are taught in a sequential program that progresses within the grade level and across the six year Lower School program.

The Middle and Upper School experience is all about tackling new academic challenges and navigating through transitions. Our Middle and Upper Schools provides a developmentally appropriate sequential program as students transition into the Middle School in grade six and then on to high school at the end of grade eight.

In Middle and Upper School, students continue to gain skills and knowledge in all of the core academic areas of English, history, science, math and world language (French, Latin, Spanish and Chinese), and have the opportunity to explore new areas in visual and performing arts, computer science, and other electives such as debate. Students at each grade level work with passionate teachers to gain knowledge and to expand their critical thinking through research projects, lab experiments and hands on activities.

Whether students are building their own “Rube-Goldberg” maze in science or conducting a personal interview for the “I-Search,” they are using their intellectual and interpersonal skills to grow into compassionate global citizens.

Athletics:

The mission of the Head-Royce School Athletics Department is to enrich the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of all student-athletes by providing equal opportunities for competition in which the lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, teamwork, integrity, commitment, and self-discipline are emphasized throughout the sports season. Sports include swimming, basketball, volleyball, football, tennis.
