US Spring Session: Three Days of Hands-On, Experiential Learning

The Upper School's Spring Session is the period of time between Mods 4 and 5 where students can choose a topic and fully immerse themselves in it. The sessions – ranging from The Meaning of Life, to How to Start a Business – offer students an opportunity to engage with the subject material through hands-on activities both in and outside of the classroom. As part of this year's Spring Session, Upper Schoolers took a tour of the Strand Bookstore, tried their hand at Brazilian capoeira, painted a mural, and recreated Olympiad events in the science lab.
