News, Musings & Thoughts

Headmaster’s Note.
We hear from families all the time that as much as they love the small grade sizes through 8th grade, they would like to see more students in 9-12.  We are working on this very rigorously. The linked letter from Dr. Melton has been sent out to the upper school this week, and I thought everyone should have the opportunity to read it. It well states our present situation, where we want to go, and how we are trying to get there.

Love to know what you think. Also, would love further recommendations of strategies and/or families or kids we might approach.



Students of the Month


High SchoolFlora Pethick

Flora was nominated because of how she showed her critical thinking side recently. In a discussion with the 9th grade, amongst a lot of negativity and piling-on, Flora spoke up disagreeing with her classmates in front of them. She responded to their responses in a polite but firm manner, and stuck to her guns in a positive way. Congratulations, Flora!

Middle School: Liam Ostrander

Liam was nominated because he is a hard worker, and cares about his grades and others.  He thinks about his actions and how they affect others, and has a desire to learn and want to do better.  In class he is engaged and attentive, often showing his critical thinking side. Congratulations, Liam!
