MHS Classics AcademyThe Classics Academy was referenced by Will Richardson in an article for the publication District Administration. In Are You an Old School or a Bold School?, the Academy was cited for fostering a learner first environment.
Bold schools are steeped in cultures where everyone, both educators and students, are seen as learners first. To be fully able to seize the opportunities that access provides, the adults need to be engaged in the learning process as much if not more than the kids in our classrooms.
Bold schools are innovating and inventing in the classroom and curriculum, poking the box of traditional education in ways that make sense for kids. Morristown (N.J.) High School’s Classics Academy is a great example of how we can deepen student learning by giving students agency over their education.
