Unique Courses

Our educators continuously tap into student interest and their own professional expertise to introduce new learning opportunities into St. Margaret’s classrooms.
When we see possibilities to innovate within our curriculum– inspired by technological advancement, industry trends, current events or student feedback–our educators are encouraged to pursue these new academic opportunities through an extensive process of research, analysis and development in collaboration with the school’s Academic Leadership Team. 
Such innovation is entrenched within the culture of St. Margaret’s professional community, which is challenged to continually improve and innovate in the classroom to bring about the most inspiring and effective coursework, subject matter, and teaching and learning for our students. 
In recent years, that has included: 

List of 4 items.

  • Computer science

    courses that explore artificial intelligence, mobile app development and immersive technology programming.
  • Courses and units

    that explore entrepreneurial studies in an experiential way. 
  • Courses that teach

    college-level research methods both in science and history. 
  • English IV seminars

    in the Upper School that explore a variety of topics and cultures, and their depictions in literature and other other art forms. 
Even within more traditional subjects, units are created that explore interdisciplinary topics in collaboration with other subjects, cross-divisional connections with older and younger students, and experiential opportunities where students learn by doing. In recent years, for example, English students have collaborated with engineering students for a project, algebra students have dived into computer science concepts, and life science students have used biomimicry to develop new entrepreneurial product ideas.
At St. Margaret’s, learning is everywhere and all the time, and through unique courses and curriculum, interdisciplinary studies and cross-divisional collaborations, the academic program at St. Margaret’s is an exciting, relevant and innovative experience for students of all ages that sparks a lifelong pursuit of learning.
