Developing the Whole Child
Students who learn differently often find themselves having to spend more time and mental energy working on homework and studying than their peers.
As a result, there is usually less time for pursuing the kinds of activities that might feel more fun. At Marburn, we believe that giving students the time to discover new interests is an essential part of a rich, meaningful school experience.
Nearly every Marburn student participates in at least one affinity-based, experiential after-school program. These activities provide students with opportunities to explore and develop their interests in a highly structured and supportive environment. Such programs are essential to providing students with experiences where they earn respect for taking risks, sharing talents, and developing a capacity to acknowledge and surpass challenges.
