The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.
The Headwaters High School teaching staff is committed to both building relationships with their students and powerfully imparting their course-specific content. The strong sense of community that is created in the classrooms and all over campus is fostered by the supportive relationships that our guides form with their students. In our High School classrooms, one will find inspired and inspiring guides. Our guides focus on scaffolding the learning process to help students prepare for a lifetime of learning. We spend time on both the content as well as methods for learning the content. Our guides truly care about the whole child. They take time to support content learning in addition to wellbeing.
In Partnership with Parents
Advisors serve as the first point of contact for the students' parents. Our advisors establish a partnership with the parent to support the students' overall wellbeing. High School is a natural time for students to begin establishing themselves as independent. We truly believe our students' success in life will be a function of their ability to produce extraordinary results while maintaining healthy and sustainable lifestyles. With the support of an advisor, students can undertake the process of becoming an adult while maintaining healthy relationships with their parents and adults.
