One of the secrets to the YDO's Approach is to ensure that, beyond curriculum, student are having shared experiences that help them build memories and assemble stories together as a community.
Toward that end, YDO strives to offer programming that will result in some form of culminating activity. For programs like LEGO Robotics or MA Science Olympiad, that ultimate experience may be a competition. For others like Astronomy or Science Club for Girls, the end-of-season showcase or presentation to the community can be very meaningful.
In this way, success is a process of setting longer-term goals and deadlines and, then, preparing step by step, week by week to meet them - sort of like life.
