In Upper School, we provide the learning and life experiences students need to become responsible and productive adults. Our collaborative environment emphasizes respect, trust, honesty, fairness, and kindness, helping students overcome daily obstacles in an environment of support and mutual understanding.
Small classes led by outstanding teachers have a powerful influence, shaping academic enthusiasm, developing intellect, broadening interests, and expanding friendships. Many classes are seminar-style roundtable discussions that encourage everyone to participate in the analysis and synthesis of ideas and information.
A significant percentage of our Upper School students choose from a wide variety of Advanced Placement courses. In addition to their academic pursuits, all students are encouraged to take an active role in school government, athletic competitions, artistic performance, and community service. Student life is enriched by many other opportunities, including our House Program. Both formal and informal leadership opportunities are woven into all aspects of daily school life.
