Specialist Classes at Seward

Classes outside of the students' homeroom are called "specialists" because students receive instruction in a 'special' curriculum content. Specialist teachers generally hold K - 12 teaching licenses specific to their content area. These classes are sometimes referred to as "preps" because the time students are with the specialist instructor is also the time the elementary classroom teacher has to 'prepare' for their lessons without students present.
There are 5 specialist classes that Children's House through E-2 students at Seward attend throughout the year. Middle school students attend classes taught by some of the specialists as an elective for their 6th hour class.
