At Eastside Prep we prepare our students for the future – college, work, life-long learning. Since we know that the future will bring a different set of circumstances for each individual, we focus on critical and creative thinking. In fact, at Eastside Prep thinking is what we do: we practice thinking; we explore new ways of thinking; we value thinking. We believe that the best way to teach thinking skills is to start with the established approaches of each academic discipline. Every field has its own set of questions and approaches, such as the scientific method. Students learn to ask, “What questions would an historian raise? How would a scientist approach this new information? What would a poet, philosopher, or mathematician think about this idea?” Our students then become historians, mathematicians, poets, and scientists as they apply these approaches to new information and new situations in the classroom and the community.
