Daily Schedule

The 6/7 schedule creates a daily experience where students thrive in an environment that provides a challenging, authentic curriculum centered on human ecology, math, writing and Spanish. Throughout the week, the Otters’ schooling includes many experiences designed specifically to promote self-awareness, community responsibility, and a sense of place. Adolescence is the scaffolding on which we build our schedule and it clearly reflects our mission.

Please use this current 6/7 band schedule to help plan ahead for and communicate any pick-ups or appointments with the school.
