Special Program for Academic & Creative Excellence

  • This selective class seeks to challenge students to think on a higher level, to be creative thinkers, and to be excellent readers and writers. Activities in this class include solving mind bending puzzles, such as matrix puzzles, logic puzzles, Sudoku number puzzles, Socratic Seminars, reading of literature, cooperative learning activities, and writing (creative writing and essay writing). Fridays are game days, as we play games that stimulate thinking, such as Buzzwords, Scrabble, Scattergories, and chess, to name a few.
