Upper School

Welcome to the Upper School

The Upper School provides students with the preparation to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world through the lens of a Quaker education. Our rigorous academic program, combined with the many opportunities to learn outside the classroom, is designed to instill a sense of social responsibility and to generate resiliency in the face of adversity.

Our diverse community celebrates many different points of view, interests and backgrounds, but all of our students have in common a passion for learning and a respect for both individual and community. We encourage our students to participate fully in the life of the School and to take advantage of the many opportunities that are available to them. As you explore our website, you will see the richness of our program.

The relationships among students and between students and teachers are the heart of the Upper School experience, and our teachers understand that a student is a whole human being whose value is not tied to the grade on a report card. They provide structures for students to be active decision-makers and self-advocates in a supportive and joyful environment. Students are challenged to step out of their comfort zones, to become familiar with uncertainty and see it as a source of excitement and promise.

The Upper School is an exciting, energetic, and fun environment that provides the scaffolding for students to build their own unique experience as they grow and develop into young adults.
