Schedule & iBlock

New Schedule for 2016-17

In 2016-17, Park Tudor is introducing a redesigned schedule for students, primarily those in grades 6-12. The new schedule maintains Park Tudor’s commitment to balance, breadth and depth in students’ academic experience.

With a 2-week (10 class days) rotation, the schedule offers students the same classes – at the same time – each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On those days, there are eight 45-minute periods, and the school day ends at 3:15 p.m., followed by Flex Block (an opportunity to meet with faculty or clubs) from 3:20-3:50 p.m.

On Wednesdays, students have four 70-minute classes, along with time for advisory. Wednesday also includes iBlock from 2:50-3:50 p.m., which offers students a chance to dive deeply into an area of interest or pursue a passion.

The school day begins at 7:55 a.m. each day with the opportunity for homeroom/advisor meetings.

What is iBlock?

Unique to Park Tudor, iBlock is an opportunity for students in grades 6-12 to take a variety of unique classes on Wednesday afternoons. Some of the iBlock options will be interdisciplinary, co-taught by Park Tudor faculty from multiple departments.

Offerings include quarter-long or semester-long options (for Upper School), and semester-long experiences for Middle School. In the Upper School, iBlock classes are purely elective and non-credited; however, students receive a notation on their transcript for iBlock classes they complete. In Middle School, participation in iBlock is mandatory, giving every student the chance to try something new or pursue a lifelong passion.

We are looking for parents, alumni, faculty and Indianapolis community members to teach iBlock classes! If you have a passion or expertise that you would like to share with our students, submit a proposal for iBlock. All that is required is your knowledge and an hour of your time on Wednesday afternoons.
