“Genius Hour is one of the things that makes Thomas Dale so unique,” says Dr. Grabham- one of Dale’s Assistant Principals. “It’s about letting students figure out something that they’re interested in that may not be in our normal curriculum.”

Genius Hour started last school year (2018-2019) and has become an event that every student looks forward to. Genius Hour takes place monthly and every student has the opportunity to sign up for a class.

The classes range from Changing a Tire, Hip Hop Choreography, to Animal Therapy Quiet Time. The different genius hour classes were made to motivate and help students to find their passion and expand their hobbies.
