|Teaching approach of the school||
Whether modeling projectile motion in a calculus-based physics class or performing an original piece of guerilla theater, summiting a 4000 meter peak or designing and offering their own elective classes, Ecole students are challenged to actively discover and pursue their passions, and share them with others. All this in a stupendous mountain setting that inspires awe, humility, and a sense of nature’s beauty and power.
