The Corwin-Russell School @ Broccoli Hall is an independent school for high-potential students 11-19 years old with varied learning styles, average to superior intelligence, exceptional creativity, attentional issues, untapped interests, talents and strengths, and a disparity between innate ability and past production. Rooted in the Latin "educare," we define ourselves as leading students to discover and develop the best in themselves: academically, creatively, socially, and personally. We base our educational philosophy on trust, responsibility, process, negotiation, expression, and a belief in each other and in the community. For our students, traditional approaches to education have yielded self-doubt, misperception of true worth, poor choices, and an enormous fear of failure--real or perceived. The Corwin-Russell School honors differences, and thereby enables students to thrive and to achieve. The faculty are knowledgable, dedicated, eclectic, diverse, creative, and exceptional individuals. These talents support a multi-faceted approach to learning, as a language-laden and skills-based experience merges with creativity and personality to form strong academic instruction, with a liberal dose of laughter. Our students benefit from partnerships with area museums, colleges, and performance centers, a career exploration week, and the annual Drama Intersession theater production.
