Upper School Curriculum
Students in Grades 9 to 12 must complete a rigorous and balanced program of studies in English, Social Studies, World Languages, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts, and Physical Education/Health.
In Grades 9 and 10, courses have been created by Upper School teachers to ensure that students are well prepared to select Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses in Grades 11 and 12. Regardless of the cumulative number of credits earned, Grade 9 and 10 students are required to enroll in eight courses.
Grade 11 and 12 students are required to enroll in a minimum of six courses. They can choose between Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) courses and/or ZIS designed courses. Students are encouraged to select a program of study that meets their ability-level, piques their interest, fulfills diploma requirements, and furthers their university admission and/or career objectives.
