Menaul School is grateful to be planning on Reopening on time in the fall. This is due to a variety of factors, including statewide measures, such as a cautious local government and early instituted mask orders compared to other states. It is also due to Menaul’s specific characteristics including a smaller student body and a large campus (33 acres). 

To reduce the contact between students, the Upper School has instituted a block schedule. This has been a very welcome and positive change for many faculty members. It allows for better planning, more time for lectures, and is easier for students to stay on top of their schoolwork.  

Along with this, it has allowed for more elective slots. We have been fortunate enough to add a variety of electives which range all the way from Graphic Novels to Greenhouse Science. Below is a comprehensive list of all electives offered to Upper School students in the fall.
