THE INTERDISCIPLINARY MODEL

Since the complex issues at the heart of this program transcend traditional disciplines like science, math, and social studies, the educational platform of the IGS model bring previously distinct subject-areas together.

Classes are taught by an interdisciplinary team of teachers sharing their expertise and differing perspectives.

  • IGS 9: Combines Social Studies 9 and Science 9 into a linear, year-long offering
  • IGS 10: Combines Social Studies 10 and Science 10 into a year linear, year-long offering
  • IGS 11: Combines Political Studies 11 (Social 11 equivalent) & International Relations 11
  • IGS 12: Combines Human Geography 12 & Environmental Science 12 (approved science 12 credit)

*IGS 11 & 12 meet daily in periods 3 & 4, giving students ample opportunity to
complete additional core courses and electives in the morning blocks.
