Register Now for Classes at Mandel JCC, Hawken Lower School and Hawken Upper School (Porch Classroom), and Beaumont School
We began in 1993 with the purpose of providing a quality drivers education program for its students. Getting a drivers license is one of the most eagerly awaited milestones in the life of an adolescent. The responsibilities and dangers implicit in operating an automobile are clear to the parents of our children. Our young people, however, do not always recognize the need to approach their new status with maturity and skills necessary to manage the risks they will inevitably encounter in their driving. The mission of this school, therefore, will be to identify and encourage safe, competent motoring skills for its students. Instructional strategies are selected to provoke students into making logical decisions about safety concerns. Relevant dialogue is encouraged and connects theoretical motoring issues to in-car, hands on situations.
