“The chief symptom of adolescence is a state of expectation, a tendency towards creative work and a need for the strengthening of self-confidence.” – Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence
In coordination with a rigorous academic foundation, Grove School students are presented with a variety of opportunities to experience and develop skills through physical and personal expression. Through participation in a wide range of activities, students are able to explore facets of themselves and the world, while discovering new abilities or refining existing talents.
As a means of examining themselves and the world around them, students at the Grove School are presented with a wide range of art programs, including theater, choir and instrumental music, 2-D and 3-D visual arts, and culinary arts. These programs are offered at all grade levels, with all 7th and 8th grade students proceeding through a two-year arts, physical, and entrepreneurial curriculum, including foundational classes in each of these art programs.
Grove School students create and maintain a variety of specialized clubs that are supervised by the Associated Student Body. These include Model United Nations, Environmental Club, and Math Club, as well as less traditional offerings, like Chivalry and Ocarina, all according to student interest.
