Sample Bennett Day Upper School Schedule

If you want to know what a school stands for, don’t look at their mission statement. Look at their schedule. We believe our school schedule embodies our belief that learning, not “curriculum,” is the most valuable currency in a school. 

The schedule to the right represents one possible version of a student day during a single trimester at Bennett Day School. Because we offer a variety of personal learning options, such as internships, travel, and online learning, this schedule could look dramatically different for another student or during a different trimester. 

In order to keep a focus on learning, we believe our schedule should be a simple and flexible as possible. That way a student can follow their personal learning interests as deeply as they feel necessary, while at the same time getting the support and mentorship they need from our master teachers.
