9th Grade CORE Experience

Every 9th grader at The Hatch School takes the same four year-long core courses, plus their choice of electives in each of the three trimesters.

Having all 9th graders in the same courses frees teachers from scheduling constraints, supporting interdisciplinary project-based learning, off-campus learning experiences, and highly responsive teaching.

Additionally, the 9th grade core encourages the formation of strong relationships early in each student's time at The Hatch School.
