The Lower School classes are self-contained although students visit specialists for science, computer, foreign language, art, music, library and physical education. Departmentalization begins in fourth grade. By the upper school, students are taking high school level courses which culminate with the New York State Regents exams in June. Extra-curricular courses, activities and clubs are built into the school day.
