A Day in the Life of an S2 Student...

School in the Square (S2) offers a Common Core aligned program of study in ELA, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts that encourages critical thinking and effective communication. The goal of our academic program is to foster the intellectual and personal growth of students, promoting college readiness and retention. Using academic data, co-teaching and small-group instruction we personalize education so students at all levels can meet or exceed the standards. S2 addresses the whole child with ample opportunities for social and emotional learning as well as physical education in a variety of modalities (i.e., sports, dance, yoga) to engage all students. The S2 leadership and staff are dedicated to creating a positive school culture that encourages student voice, ownership, and independence.
