The workload at our school is minimal in terms of homework, which is something we enjoy, but we get a lot done in class. We don't often take tests but instead are graded on our participation in class, in-class work, and projects. Our school emphasizes being able to reason and come up with our own conclusions. Teachers at Polaris are great when it comes to working with students who are having difficulties and they make class very engaging. The only drawback to our school is that, because it is so small, we don't always have a great variety of options for classes.
