TES Electives

At TES, specials (lower school) and electives (upper school) are vibrant courses that are considered just as important as core classes. Specials and electives courses at TES allow students to explore a range of arts, sciences, language, and other activities, broadening their exposure and helping them develop new and creative skills. These courses also help students develop social, practical, and behavioral skills, and can boost their confidence at the same time. 

Students at TES attend specials/electives each day.  In the Lower School, students participate in general core specials; as students move to the Upper School, electives are varied and students have some choice in their selections.
