9th – 12th Grade
Sunrise Beach High School curriculum provides Advanced Placement college-preparatory learning, as well as a foundation for independent thinking and diversity appreciation. We encourage students to learn about both themselves and the world around them.
Mastery Learning Model
Sunrise Beach High School teaches all courses through a Classical Education theory, as well as the Mastery Learning Model, which fosters lasting learning experiences and increased comprehension. Teachers use interactive classroom environments, Mastery Learning Techniques, hands-on manipulatives, college-level science equipment for all grades.
College Preparatory & Advanced Placement
Sunrise Beach Curriculum is based on the Mastery Learning Model, and within that model, we offer three options for College Preparatory Programs. These include:
- College in the High School courses through the University of Washington (highlighted below), as well as Central Washington University and Eastern Washington University.
- Advanced Placement Courses
- The College Board AP Scholar Program
We offer Washington State Accredited Advanced Placement (AP) courses. These courses provide students with a head start on college coursework. Students who enroll in AP courses and take exams are more likely to enter and complete college. As such, we encourage all our High School students to consider these options.
University of Washington in High School Program
Through the University of Washington in High School (UWHS) program, high school students can complete University of Washington courses and earn college credit in their own classrooms with their own teachers. Students and teachers use UW curriculum, activities, texts, tests, and grading scales.
As with standard modern college courses, students earn a final grade over time; a grade does not depend on one exam. Students receive recognition for their college work.
