How does the "school within a school" benefit all Hawken students?
The Mastery School of Hawken’s structure will be modular so that some Hawken students may choose to spend their high school careers in University Circle while others may join for a semester or two. Mastery School of Hawken students will have the opportunity to access extracurricular offerings at Gates Mills, including athletics and performing arts.
For more than a decade, Hawken faculty have created nationally recognized programs that place students in the real world and engage them in solving authentic problems: Entrepreneurship, Engineering, Intensives, and our freshman PHD (Physics, Humanities, and Design) class – examples of what we call “macro” courses. The Mastery School of Hawken will enable a larger catalog of both semester “macro” and Intensive courses to choose from.
