Corbett High School

Corbett High School is devoted to enabling students to realize their full potential. We don’t think that a school should place limits on that potential through screening, tracking, or grouping because to limit a student in high school is to possibly limit the future of that individual forever. Instead, Corbett maintains an open enrollment policy for all its courses. Corbett staff work diligently to encourage the academic potential in every student, in every subject. We want the young adults who graduate from our school to have the tools to achieve greatness in whatever they set out to accomplish.

The Corbett High School curriculum is built around the College Board’s Advanced Placement program. We made this choice because the AP learning standards are both rigorous and in-depth. Corbett’s AP courses are carefully designed to stretch students and engage their minds and imaginations, and they are designed to accommodate the learning needs of all Corbett students, not just the elite. In Corbett we call this approach “AP for all”, and it means that every student enrolled in Corbett High School deserves the chance to work with big ideas and achieve their fullest potential. To do less would be to shirk our moral responsibility to our students.

But potential is not limited to academics and Corbett High School is devoted to empowering students to develop the full array of talents they possess. The Corbett High School band, for instance, has consistently ranked among the top ten bands in its league for a decade. Corbett’s fine art students routinely earn college credit for their work in the visual arts. And, thanks in large part to the Corbett Boosters, Corbett students are able to compete in a large array of competitive athletic activities.

Visit our campus and see what student potential looks like. You’ll see student art covering the walls and filling the empty spaces in the commons. You’ll encounter students working in study groups on calculus, Thoreau, and the fundamentals of American democracy. After school you’ll find students competing in soccer, volleyball, basketball, and a host of other athletic events. And you’ll meet faculty and staff who are committed to seeing the highest potential developed in every student.
