Academic Courses

Dartmoor offers a full catalog of one-to-one courses covering all core and most academic subjects for elementary, middle, and high school. In addition to these extensive proprietary curricula, Dartmoor works with local 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. Dartmoor can also create specific courses to address student interest, aptitude, or external credit requirements. The imagination prescribes limits at Dartmoor. Contact DS to imagine the possibilities. Admissions: (425) 885 6296 or admissions@dartmoorschool.org.

Academic Calendar

Dartmoor is a 1-12 year-round school and a student may start at any point during the calendar year. DS operates from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm, Monday through Thursday. Dartmoor observes national and some other holidays, as well as a winter and summer break (View current calendar here.) Families opting for a flexible program can coordinate their schedule with their local district's or a private school's calendar for convenience. Special courses are available during summer session.

Enrollment Options

Students at all levels can select between supplemental, full-time, or dual enrollment. Most secondary courses are available at Foundations, General, and Honors (by prior permission only). Dartmoor places students based on formal assessment and a complete review of academic records. DS does not participate in the Advanced Placement (AP) program, but does offer test preparation for AP exams.

Credit System

While typically awarding credit on the semester system, DS also offers quarter and trimester credits. The Instructor and student work exclusively one-to-one at the student's level without the distractions and interruptions that greatly reduce the profitable amount of instruction in traditional settings. Therefore, students can complete coursework more rapidly. This allows students who have fallen behind the ability to keep up with their peers, thus avoiding the social and academic issues surrounding credit recovery.

Elementary School

An elementary student (grades 1-5) enrolls for non-credit courses and does not earn grades or a transcript. These courses develop core proficiencies in math, reading, science, and social studies, but offer substantial scope for personalization depending on student strengths, interests, and needs. DS's elementary program serves gifted and special needs students, as well as those transitioning, needing extra help, or requiring a higher level of scheduling flexibility. Supplemental student support courses are available in most subjects.

Middle School

A middle school student can enroll for either credit or non-credit coursework. Credit coursework furnishes a student with grades and a transcript (not required but advisable for admission to some private schools). All students receive regular progress reports. With prior permission, an advanced middle school student may enroll in high school courses to earn grade points and academic credit toward graduation. DS's middle school program serves gifted and special needs students, as well as those transitioning, needing extra help, or requiring a higher level of scheduling flexibility. Supplemental student support courses are available in most subjects.

High School

A high school student enrolls for credit courses building a transcript and credits toward graduation at Dartmoor or another school.

DS's high school program serves gifted and special needs students, as well as those transitioning, needing extra help, or requiring a higher level of scheduling flexibility. Supplemental student support courses are available in most subjects.
