academic life has had more than eighty-five years of scrutiny and responsive
revision. We continue to emphasize skills which we think are timeless,
while introducing courses and methodology which reflect the needs of a
rapidly changing world. Our commitment to small class size insures that
all voices are heard and that active participation is unavoidable.
Faculty and students develop a comfort with one another that fosters
intellectual risk-taking within a friendly and supportive community. Our
mission statement asks that we seek "an academically diverse,
international, and multicultural student body," and we expect our
curriculum and classroom practices to honor this mandate. As you peruse
this part of our website, we hope you'll enjoy learning more about our
upper and lower schools, our daily fine arts offerings, and the strength
of our ninth grade program. Most of all, we hope this introduction will
inspire a broader conversation which we welcome at any time.
