60-minute periods - "just right length"

Each day contains 5 1-hour blocks in addition to community time and lunch. These 1-hour blocks are the "just right length" for the kind of teaching and learning we do at ICS. We find the typical 40-minute period to be too short to really get into the material. And while more than 60-minutes can be useful for certain labs and projects, it's also easy to lose interest when you go much longer than an hour. So, we have flex periods in place to expand class into when more time is justified.

Our teachers design lessons with 60 minutes in mind. No single class is spent doing the same thing the whole time.
