East Bay School for Boys

Middle School Student: If you are looking for something beyond the traditional classroom and textbook learning to inspire your son to a love of school and learning, you found the right place. From the great academics, the integrated curriculum, design thinking and hands on learning, they teach boys how to become independent thinkers, courageous and responsible young men.
They have student led conferences where the boys present their work and their own evaluation of the work back to their parents and adviser. There is an open discussion about strengths, opportunities and where help is needed. This reinforces the boys to own their own learning.
The grading system is very thoughtful/informative. It really helps show where the boys are excelling, or may need more help - they break it down by approach to the work (prep, timeliness, organization) and then the actual content of the work (the outcome/answer).
