Join us on Friday, May 5, from 4:30-8 p.m. for the opening gala of the all school art show and middle and upper school spring concert.
Michael Gary, Head of School
In the beginning of the year, I asked many of you about our physical space and what you'd like to see updated and transformed. I heard you loud and clear: the theater.
Tucker Rae-Grant, STEAM Program Director
If a lower school child were to ask me what we do in the STEAM Lab, I would tell them that we take something they learned in one class in order to answer a question in another, identify a problem that we want to solve, try out a lot of things to see what works, and practice appreciating the different skills and interests that everyone brings to a project.
Terry Kessel, Middle School Director
A number of years ago I attended a workshop entitled Problem-Based Learning at the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Annual Conference. I was already familiar with project-based learning, an approach to interdisciplinary, collaborative, hands on pedagogy that has been an occasional practice in middle schools for decades.
