Academics at Woodberry are shaped by the fact that we are an all-boys, all-boarding school. Teachers and students come to know each other extremely well, as relationships that begin in the classroom extend to the athletic field or dining room. This style of relational teaching lets teachers focus on what will work best for each boy.
Boys learn differently than girls — that’s what scientific research tells us. Woodberry classrooms are built for boys. They’re places to take risks, discuss new ideas, and work with your hands. There’s space here for every boy’s voice in the classroom.
Boys also learn differently as their brains develop during high school. That means a third form (freshman) classroom will operate differently from a sixth form (senior) classroom. Younger boys take classes that meet forty-five minutes a day, five days a week. This daily contact with teachers allows a boy to learn the foundational basics of various courses. Fifth and sixth form classes meet three times a week, once for forty-five minutes and twice for ninety minutes. This structure helps prepare boys for a college schedule and allows a teacher to explore topics with students at greater depth.
