Recent displays of racism and violence in our country, highlighted by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, compel us to reinforce our commitment to diversity and inclusion in delivering our educational mission of cultivating academic excellence through collaboration, creativity, and character development.
"I have long held the opinion that good schools are known by what they choose to celebrate, and while we are not able to hold our year-end Honors Assembly in the usual manner, I am thrilled to invite you to view our inaugural Honors Magazine! Highlighted within are the sensational achievements of our students, brought about by the intersection of talent, hard work, and dedication, as recognized by our faculty. I want to thank each of the contributors from our faculty and staff, and particularly Dr. Kerri Hunt and Mrs. Laura Woods, whose additional labor at the end of the year made this magazine a reality." - Mr. Michael Smith, Head of Upper School
Every action a student chooses reflects that student's character and values. Each academic quarter, the middle school honors a student in each grade for an act of character, a time when the student took action and displayed a character trait in line with the Middle School Patriot Pledge, to show compassion and respect, to be a leader and a role model, and to give 100 percent.
Each academic quarter, the upper school honors a student of character in each grade. Such an honor recognizes those students who exhibit character traits in line with the Upper School Patriot Pledge, not to lie, cheat, steal, or plagiarize; nor to tolerate the dishonorable behavior of others.
