Earned Honors Model

 In MBS “Earned Honors” classes, students are not pre-sorted into “Honors” and “Regular” students, but are instead given the opportunity to decide for themselves whether they would like to be assessed under Honors Learners criteria. Choosing whether to pursue Honors in a class means our students can choose what sort of learner they would like to be in a particular subject, rather than being told what sort of learning they are capable of. Honors and non-Honors students support, push, and learn from one another, even as those students who have elected to earn Honors commit themselves to greater independence of thought, patience with process, and sophistication of skill. Ideally, all Morristown-Beard students find at least one subject in which they view themselves as Honors learners.
