High School

A Unique Program of Instruction

Rather than taking a subject such as Biology in 9th grade for a whole year and then not experiencing this subject again, Desert Marigold high school students take many subjects every year in specialized, sequential, Classroom Discussion seminar blocks of three to four weeks. This approach allows them to fully immerse themselves in a subject with freshness and enthusiasm.

Our students are led by specialists through a rigorous array of content ranging from environmental sustainability to statistics, from comedy and tragedy to the transcendentalists, from world history through art to history through architecture. In addition to these college preparatory intensives, the student receives an accelerated and diverse arts curriculum that meets the needs of the students.Ceramics

Music, drama, eurythmy, fine arts, physical education and practical arts provide our students with creative personal expression and challenging growth opportunities. Students participate in purposeful community service to support their development as responsible compassionate individuals.
