True, deep learning is a result of the appropriate balance of student freedom and responsibility. Our Upper School’s challenging curriculum and student-led philosophy prepare students to think critically and collaborate professionally. As a premier college preparatory school, St. Martin’s offers numerous advanced placement and honors classes along with in-house ACT and SAT prep classes. The administration expects student involvement in every facet of school life. As a result, students internalize a sense of ownership and responsibility and carry it with them into adulthood.
