At Watkinson, we take great pride in what we teach and why.
We invite you to download and browse our course catalog to see for yourself. Never cast in stone, our curriculum is updated regularly and reflects our commitment to filling our classes with vibrant, current, and effective lessons and material. Our teachers are empowered to change course within their classrooms as they recognize that a particular group of students might benefit from a new approach, a reordering of a lesson, or a different book. This flexibility and agility challenges and supports all kinds of minds and is a hallmark of our educational philosophy.
Look for the connections between courses and the transitions from introductory to sophisticated skills. If you have any questions or observations, please do not hesitate to contact us.
