自成立以来, McDonogh School has had an unwavering commitment to providing students with a comprehensive, 全面的文科教育. Our PK-12 curriculum ensures that students acquire a broad conceptual understanding as well as more specialized knowledge in core disciplines. 我们相信深度学习发生在学生批判性思考的时候, 运用知识和技能, and have opportunities to transfer understanding to novel situations.
McDonogh’s faculty works to develop self-reliant critical thinkers prepared to do good in a diverse and ever-changing world. LifeReady使这种转型学习成为可能. Teaching students how to think—not what to think—ensures their intellectual growth and is foundational to a healthy democracy.
Under the guidance of master teachers, students learn to make sense of new material for themselves. To this end, classes at McDonogh are cognitively demanding, active learning environments. While our teachers provide critical guidance as students develop mastery in and across disciplines, 学生应该进行深入的思考, 探索不同的视角, 合作, 有效沟通.
从学前班到12年级, 学生通过方法参与学术内容, 例程, and practices that help them learn subject matter while simultaneously developing skills in six domains: 有创意的 and 批判性思维; 沟通; 的角度进行思考; 协作与团队合作; 自我认知; and 融入世界. The very methods that develop these competencies are also powerful tools for thinking deeply.
As a result, McDonogh graduates students who are truly life ready. 他们学会管理快速变化, 在全球环境中, 有不同的社区, 并准备好面对意想不到的挑战. They engage in purposeful work and use their knowledge and skills to create, often forging meaningful connections between disciplines—the way most learning happens in life.
