博鱼体育电竞’s academic curriculum utilizes a block schedule in which students take one intensive interdisciplinary course each quarter. This innovative form of learning provides students with opportunities for deeper interactions with topics of instruction than is available with traditional classrooms.
这些课程是8周的人文课程(英语和历史), 或STEM(科学), 技术, 工程, 和数学). The school year is divided into four quarters with students receiving a half a credit for each of these block courses.
学生 end the year with a Humanities credit that covers 英语 and 历史 and a STEM credit that covers 数学 and 科学.
学生 also have the opportunity to take up to two additional electives in art or language. Those students who will be assisted with academic support or 英语 as a Second 语言 (ESL) will also have these sessions included in their schedule.
