What is Paideia?
Paideia is not a strategy for teaching, but rather a philosophy of educating the whole child. Classrooms are student centered where children encounter fewer teacher-directed lessons and more discovery learning. A wide range of higher order conceptual skills are used to complement, not replace, the traditional basics of reading, writing, and computation.
The education will include project learning, Socratic seminar instruction, and intellectual work from the students. The curriculum will focus on the study of literature, fine arts, music, foreign language, technology, science, math, and physical health.
Merrol Hyde Magnet School is committed to excellence in K-12 education by utilizing the Paideia philosophy of educating the whole child - body, mind, and spirit - while encouraging and nurturing a life long love of learning.
Merrol Hyde Magnet is an academic magnet school with an emphasis in foreign language. Rigor and challenge at an accelerated pace are expected and embedded in our curriculum.
