Our Personal and Social Education (PSE) curriculum supports our students in developing their social and emotional well-being and is part of the Advisory program and classroom lessons. Our Grade 11-12 students have the following PSE lessons planned during Advisory lessons:
Quarter 1 - Grade 12
Romantic Relationships and Dating; Families
Love, Marriage and Lifetime Commitments
Reproductive and Sexual Anatomy and Physiology
Human Sexual Response and Sexual Dysfunction
Sexuality, Media, and the Arts
Quarter 1 - Grade 11
Sexual decision-making, sexual communication, relationship assertiveness and negotiation
Parents can reinforce learning at home by sharing what they know about these subjects. They can share their family’s, culture’s, and religion’s perspective on these aspects of Personal and Social Education.
If you would like your child to opt out of any of these lessons, just send an e-mail to your child’s Advisor and make sure your child knows. If you have any questions, you can contact your child’s Advisor.
The listed PSE lessons will be led by our Advisors, Counselor, and Biology teachers.
Our Personal and Social Education curriculum integrates the IB’s beliefs about PSE together with the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education 3rd Edition from the Sexuality-Information and Education Council of the United States in order to provide a well-balanced program for our students. You can find our Personal and Social Education Handbook here.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
