School Notes

  • "...Since 1922, our highest priority has been the support and development of informed and inspired teaching. Many of our faculty relish life in houses on campus, sharing their domestic worlds with students. Others bring the breadth of their lives away from the campus to their work in the classroom. All bring singularly strong academic and professional credentials to their work. Our faculty combines many of the qualifications of a university faculty with the commitment to individual students that is the hallmark of independent schools. By allowing teachers to choose the way in which they contribute their vitality to students' lives, we are able to assemble an outstanding group of scholars and professionals who bring true expertise and enthusiasm to the learning experience. This special commitment to the classroom experience, together with a comprehensive program of sabbaticals and professional development, supports academic excellence." - from school website
