Classes

There are a total of eight different classes. Each day, students take four classes, with alternating daily schedules. There are four days of classes (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday), so each student has each class twice. So on Tuesday and Thursday you have the same schedule, and Wednesday and Friday, the same schedule. All students take all 8 classes, though the expectations for the older students may vary from those for the younger ones. The last class of each day is an elective block, with unique subjects, activities, or excursions that students can sign up for during lunch each day.
