Step inside our virtual campus. There is so much to explore.
Drew knows and believes in teenagers —their ideas, their dreams, their opinions, and their potential. That’s why we’ve created a high school community that challenges the traditional definition of success and celebrates achievement one student at a time. The result is that our students develop into fascinating individuals who are sought after by colleges and who know themselves well when they step out into the world.
At Drew we go beyond. We believe that in order for learning and true understanding to make the biggest impact it must be relevant, connected, and extend beyond the classroom. To learn more about Drew's academic program and the impact of a Drew education be sure to join us for one of our upcoming Beyond the Classroom events.
Each Beyond the Classroom event with include a presentation from our Head of School and four opportunities to experience a Drew classroom through interactive Zoom sessions. Parents/guardians and students are all welcome to attend these dynamic events.
At Drew, the goal of learning is not about the accumulation of information and mundane memorization. It is only about achieving a deep level of understanding.
The outcomes of the Drew educational experience will prepare our students with the essential skills and competencies for 21st century professions and careers, as well as social and economic conditions that may not even exist today.
At Drew, each department has been engaged in the process of reorienting learning around our mission and outcomes by answering the essential question of “Why?”. Why are we learning this? And why does it matter?
“Finding my passions at Drew felt liberating because, as I said before, when I entered Drew, I had passions that were kind of projected onto me, passions that were kind of endowed to me by my parents or by my friends and that I grew to love from there. When I developed passions at Drew for philosophy, for instance, for badminton, for basketball, for history, I developed those passions because of my own authentic organic interest in those subjects, in those activities. So developing passions at Drew felt liberating because I felt that I was actually living a life that I wanted to, and not one that was just kind of given to me.”
“Throughout my time in the Performing Arts Department, I received incredible mentorship from both my older peers and my teachers. That's something that I really valued about Drew, especially because the small class sizes really helped me get to know everyone, and I was able to learn from people in all grade levels, which was super helpful.”
“I was able to fully immerse myself in my learning through our electives and through DEALL because it was no longer just the curriculum in the class and taking tests and finals. It was really expanding that learning outside of the classroom, being able to engage not only through a test or an essay, but really in a much more hands-on way, whether that was in San Francisco or in the Mojave desert or wherever it may be. I was really able to expand my learning beyond the classroom.”
“My daughter could not be happier at Drew! She absolutely loves her teachers, feels engaged (even in this online format), is already making friends whom she studies with on the phone, and is excited and happy about school every day. I am thrilled for her that she is clearly exactly where she should be!"
