Fayerweather’s curriculum emphasizes a spirit of exploration and creative problem solving by providing opportunities to learn from direct experiences. The Extended Day program emphasizes these principles across all grade and age levels. In the younger grades, students begin their afternoon by sharing thoughts and ideas before starting experiences through exploration and science, art and acting, or social justice and activism.
Older grade levels have opportunities to hone their proficiencies and comprehension in different fields. The Extended Day Band provides a first-hand experience playing music and helps grow confidence by culminating in a public performance. The Antiracist Activism dives deeper into social and racial justice topics by looking at real-world examples of what is happening in different communities around the US.
