The Hidden Curriculum
At the core of any school system is a curriculum of subjects regarded to be the most important elements of education. However, there is also a hidden curriculum that underpins everything taught. How to deal with people and self are skills that are usually reinforced along the way throughout school. But, we want to give stronger importance to them as does the International Baccalaureate (IBO). These interpersonal and intrapersonal skills are the focus at CHS. Learning about etiquette, clothing, manners, organization, respect, presentation of self, dealing with people and communication, reflection, thinking critically, well-being and mindfulness are different aspects of the hidden curriculum. These skills of the future are emphasized at CHS. We believe in the importance of this hidden curriculum and the development of skills in this area.
