Over time there has been many different takes on education. Generally, there is formal education and informal education.
specific instructional activities conducted in a classroom or other institutional setting.
all other learning experiences. (i.e. field trips, hands on activities, and others.
Most schools have separate classes for students of different levels of achievement such as average students, slow-learning students, and gifted students. These different groups of students help to ensure that each is learning to their maximum ability and challenging themselves.
Some elementary schools have been using a new system in which the students are not grouped into grade levels but instead are put in different classes for each subject based on ability.
TYPES OF EDUCATION

learn best by looking at graphics and charts, reading, or watching a demonstration.
hands-on experiences are what help these people learn the best.
Teens need 8-10 hours of sleep each night to be able to perform at their best. However, only 15% of teens actually get this amount of sleep regularly.
Research has shown that students involved in extracurricular activities are typically more well-rounded and engaged with their school. This makes them less likely to fail or drop out.
Each student must send in an application and be selected to attend after they have completed middle school.
Both boys and girls are accepted.
Very few students are accepted since classes are kept small and contain only about 10 students per class.
It costs $40,000 to be enrolled. This pays for: Dorms, a meal plan, classes, and extracurricular activities.
Each school day consists of 4 core classes..
The duration of each class is 1 hour long and each is followed by a 15 minute break.
During the break, students can relax, do homework, or walk through the campus to their next class.
After core classes are finished, the early afternoon is for optional classes that each student chooses. These classes last 45 minutes each.
Teachers are required to provide students with a field trip or other hands on activity once a week.
Clubs: our school will offer clubs in music, community service, environmental ideas, exercise and academic. These clubs help students get more involved with topics they are interested in and look great on college applications.
Sports: Students can either try-out for the school's varsity level teams or participate in intramural sports. Both build a sense of school pride and self-confidence in students.
All students are required to take 4 core classes during each of the four years they attend. These classes are math, science, english, and history. The specific levels and courses within these categories correlate with the grade levels.
To accompany these core classes, student pick 3 extra classes which they may take. The options include music courses, art and photography courses, business courses, technology courses, theatrical courses, and culinary arts courses. However, one of these courses must be a physical activity course such as archery, yoga, basketball, football, tennis or dance classes. If a student is involved in a varsity or intramural sport, they do not have this requirement and may pick another course.
Our Campus offers restaurants, a swimming pool, a stadium, a work out center, football fields, tennis courts, a gymnasium, a theater, a and a main dining hall.
These facilities are used for extracurricular activities and a students' free time.
