Block Schedule

Minnehaha Academy Upper School follows a year long, seven-period modified block schedule. The modified block schedule promotes diverse teaching strategies such as sustained discussion, question and answer sessions, reflections, simulations, rehearsals, laboratory experiments, group projects, and cooperative learning. In addition, while the schedule maintains three class meetings per week, the schedule enables students to focus more on their individual classes each day as they only need to prepare for, at most, four classes per block day.
