Classroom life at BNS centers on exploration and challenge. Science, social studies and the arts are almost interchangeable in our rooms, and academic skills are developed in the context of thematic curriculum.  These themes reflect state and city curriculum guidelines for the teaching of social studies and science.  Over the years teachers have worked together to create a list of topics that create a sequence. They also give children exposure to many disciplines and methods of inquiry.
