WHAT’S NEW The lower school debuted a new playground this fall, which was partially designed by the students themselves during their Design Thinking course. The upper school is planning its fifth year of JanTerm, an intensive, three-week period of 50 accelerated courses of study in January. Each division has a team of learning specialists that connects students, parents, and teachers with research on the neuroscience of learning.
