As a parent and as Head of the Upper School, I feel that the one school under one roof model works especially well here. Whether engaging in peer mentoring between older and younger students or simply high-fiving acquaintances from other divisions, students find this a healthy environment in which to learn and grow.
Head of the Upper School
The other day I tutored in the first grade classroom. I felt I learned so much about the kids - that we'd connected. Nervous at first, they loosened up quickly. The next day, I saw one in the hallway, said hello and had a brief chat about our reading. It dawned on me how rare it is to have deep connections through all levels at the school and how hard it must be to get that type of togetherness at another school. It's just one of the things that makes us so fortunate.
