Cobscook, which operates through a contract with Calais High School, is inspired by a number of models of education, one of which is interdisciplinary learning.

It was a helpful reminder for all of us working with students to be “emotional detectives,” and not assume that, when students were withdrawn or acting out, these were behavioral choices
