We Teach the Way Students Learn

Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom

Teachers leverage students’ strengths and show them different paths to academic success.
CH-CH teachers create multiple paths to mastery of both skills and content, ensuring that all students have the opportunity to engage with curriculum in meaningful ways. In our student-centered classrooms, with an average class size of ten students, teachers leverage students’ strengths, show them various paths to academic success, and help them grow in their self-advocacy and self-confidence. It is an experience that is nothing short of transformative.

Multiple Intelligences

Our work with students is inspired by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University, who developed the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Dr. Gardner proposes that there are nine intelligences that schools need to stimulate and support. At CH-CH, teachers design lessons that tap into the range of these intelligences:

  • Existential
  • Interpersonal
  • Intrapersonal
  • Kinesthetic
  • Logical-Mathematical
  • Musical
  • Naturalistic
  • Verbal-Linguistic
  • Visual-Spatial
Located 10 miles from Boston, Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall (CH-CH) is a private, college preparatory day and boarding school for grades 8-12/PG. CH-CH cultivates intellectual courage, creative ambition, and unwavering empathy that drives students to achieve their best.
