At The Samuel Huntington School we believe in providing a safe nurturing learning environment where students benefit from an academically rigorous curriculum rich in the Arts, Science, and Social Studies.  On a daily basis students are presented with clear learning expectations, rigorous tasks, engage in accountable talk with their peers, and learn how to be organized for effort.

Clear Expectations

For students to achieve at high levels, they must understand exactly what is expected of them.

Academic Rigor
In every subject, at every grade level, instruction and learning includes a commitment to a knowledge core, high thinking demand, and active use of knowledge.  Encouraging students to be critical thinkers using the higher level of Bloom's Taxonomy.

Accountable Talk
Student to student talk: questioning, probing, and providing commentary that is appropriate to the discipline using evidence and accurate knowledge to further develop ideas.

Organized for Effort
Replacing the assumption that aptitude determines what and how students learn with the belief that sustained and directed effort can yield high achievement for all students by using data to drive instruction.
