Dartmoor School - Excellence in one-to-one education

Credit - It comes down to choice

Dartmoor students select from an extensive course catalogue. Dartmoor also collaborates with private and public schools to ensure consistency for students remediating or replacing credits as well as for those attending DS temporarily or as part of a transition plan. In addition to Dartmoor's regular offerings, students enjoy the ability to petition for new classes. From this initiative grew DS's "Shakespeare Studies" and "Calculus II" courses.

Practice & Theory Courses

With permission, students may participate in one of DS's exciting Practice &Theory courses in which a student combines a practical outside experience (e.g., glassblowing classes) with a Dartmoor-based academic exploration of the topic. DS developed this program to encourage students to follow their passion, as well as to broaden the potential for credit-bearing electives otherwise unfeasible at Dartmoor's sites (e.g., scuba, ceramics, martial arts, animation, etc.).

Independent Study

Graduating students have the opportunity for independent study. This allows DS students to develop their interests or skills extracurricularly. Popular choices include Physical Education, Driver's Education, Occupational Education, Art Lessons, Music Lessons, and Photography. A student may also propose an alternative subject. All courses subject to prior approval.

Transfer Credit

DS coursework is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and approved by OSPI WA and the NCAA. Through the NWAC and its regional affiliates, Dartmoor enjoys full reciprocity with many public, private, and parochial schools across the US.

Each school or district, however, has its own rules governing course replacement and the transfer of external credits. Therefore Dartmoor recommends discussing policy with an official from the school of record. Even where no formal process exists it is still advisable to have written approval for the planned course of study.

In instances where a school or district does not accept or limits external credits, a student may opt to build a Dartmoor transcript independently. In this scenario, the student simply submits the DS transcript to colleges alongside the home transcript. Many Dartmoor students have accumulated dual transcripts and been accepted to prestigious institutions.
