The Calverton Upper School seeks to encourage learners to reach their highest academic ability, demonstrate grit, curiosity, persistence, and above all, a growth mindset.  

As an Upper School, we emphasize developing independent proactive, self-advocates who are disciplined and confident learners.  Our team of skilled and supportive teachers provide an enriched learning environment that challenges and nurtures all learners. Our focus on teaching and learning encourages students to become active, compassionate, lifelong learners. As an International Baccalaureate School our learners strive to become inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success; they imply a commitment to help all members of the school community learn to respect themselves, others, and the world around them.
