为什么目的?

The Thacher School is anything but typical. Everything we do here is guided by a set of deeply held convictions that add up to the simple truth that high school can and should be a thrilling adventure.

The most enduring lessons of high school often take place outside of the classroom.

这就是为什么我们 室外项目 will take you on week-long backcountry trips in the Eastern Sierra and Channel Islands and why every student will find themselves taking up the reins and caring for a horse as part of our 马项目. These 项目 ask students to do something really valuable: face real risks with the possibility of real failure. It’s how confidence is built, genuine fulfillment is attained, and students expand their understanding of themselves and their own abilities.

It’s in pursuit of these same transformative learning experiences that we encourage students to head out for meaningful 足彩网推荐 Service projects in the community, as well as faculty-led immersion learning in places like China, 塞内加尔, and Bolivia as part of our 全球研究 Program.

Our own 427-acre campus, with its winding trails and expansive mountain views, also provides a powerful place to learn and explore. Fieldwork at local watershed sites brings subjects like biology and chemistry to life, while Environmental 可持续性 initiatives on campus—from large-scale composting to a solar array field—provide environmental science students with subjects for hands-on study. Looking toward the community, our ethics and statistics classes recently joined forces to study homelessness in our region and a Spanish class curated an exhibit of immigration stories. The common thread: the recognition that learning is deeper and more enduring when students follow their genuine curiosity and engage with real problems. 

以这种方式, we provide learning spaces—wherever they may be—that facilitate the kind of growth and reflection needed to produce curious, 富有同情心的, and resilient young people who are prepared to make a positive impact on today’s world.
