Our 8:30 a.m. start time was established for a reason. So was our modified 8-period block schedule. We want our students to be rested, healthy, and ready to enjoy the energy of a high school experience.
Students have seven classes plus a study period per semester, attending four classes per day on a rotating basis. This schedule has resulted in calmer transitions in the hallways, lowered stress levels, and enhanced quality class time.
De Smet Jesuit’s balanced approach to academics, religious formation, community service, athletics and clubs helps us form well-rounded graduates.
