What to Expect

1. Core Knowledge

Surprisingly, most schools are anti-knowledge. In the age of Google, they question the utility of content and instead focus on more progressive attitudes towards teaching 'critical thinking'. This well-meaning approach is contrary to cognitive neuroscience and results in compounding academic gaps. Content knowledge is the foundation upon which critical thinking takes place and takes a central role throughout our curriculum.

2. Active Learning

As a student develops  core knowledge across the disciplines they're encouraged to utilize and manifest their understanding through active learning projects. Learning at Dexter does not simply consist of staring at a screen all day, but instead orbits around building, coding, writing, drawing, sculpting, performing, designing, organizing, singing, and creating tangible artifacts. This project based approach takes place within a core knowledge framework that ensures  students aren't just having fun, but also developing themselves academically.

3. Emotional and Social Growth

An uncomfortable fact rarely discussed within the context of schooling is that teen suicide rates are at an all time high. We make intentional efforts to embed emotional and social development in both our curriculum and school culture. In one dimension, we embed the learning experience with meaning and purpose. In a other dimension, we help students learn to navigate conflict, interact with others in healthy ways, and to develop themselves as an healthy individual.

4. Challenge and High Expectations

At Dexter we believe that our collective future hinges on the actions and development of each individual on the planet. As such, we've created a culture of high expectations for both our students and their guardians. Dexter is not a school for students to check boxes and coast - it's a school designed for challenge and transformation. Our learning coaches seek to find each students learning edge and help them continuously transcend it.

Dexter is a fully digital learning experience with remote students around the world. We're supporting this growing online network of students with a physical network of high tech community learning spaces. Our campuses provide students access to equipment like 3d printers, in-person mentoring, and a safe social environment to connect with peers.
