Beyond the Core
In addition to the core academic curriculum, students are offered an important range of experiences that are engaging in their own right. A Physical Education program supplemented by frequent opportunities to play and exercise helps vary the pace of the day and provides energetic students chances to 'channel their enthusiasm'. The widespread use of Technology involvement helps build skills they will find important in their future learning environments. Students get to exercise their creative instincts and talents by choosing from a number of hands-on offerings, including woodshop and dedicated arts classes. And frequently teachers create new enrichment classes built around the interests expressed by a particular class or individual student. All together, these opportunities encourage Dearborn students to have fun and gain confidence, while working on important social and academic skills.
