The Dictionary Game (Scobie)

Come join the class in which you’ll make up ersatz (look it up!) definitions for real, but unknown words and try to convince us all that yours is the legitimate definition. You get points for fooling us with your clever, convincing definitions, and for guessing which one is the actual definition. No cheating, good people. Keep it real; keep it fun. We’ll have occasional workshops to improve your skills and knowledge, but mostly we’ll play, play, play!

Geometry, Continued (Scobie)

Y’all know who you are and what’s up, down, parallel and perpendicular. This Spring Term, we’re gonna take a deep dive into Trigonometric equations, graphs, and some brilliant trig curriculum from New Zealand. Let’s learn some more!

Drugs, Alcohol, Addiction, and Recovery (Scobie)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

Shop Life (Scobie)

If you like making things, fixing things,  and  being competent with tools, you should always take as much Shop Life as you can possibly get your hands on! Here’s what we’ll be doing:

  1. Learning about tools and the skills to use them effectively and safely.
  2. Working on improving, organizing, stocking, and cleaning our ever-developing shop.
  3. Contributing to the school and our larger community with fixes, furniture, and projects.
  4. Completing projects that result in gifts you can give to yourself or others.
