International Day brings students together with alumni, other guests
Instead of International Day bringing different performances and lots of tasty treats from all over the world, this year’s edition brought a lot of different guests who offered incredible experiences and knowledge.

7th grader completes adult cyber challenge
Congratulations to 7th grader Zoe for completing the Department of Defense Cyber Awareness Challenge 2021.

She's the first student at the Coder Dojo Collaborative's to complete the project. This is the same content that adults who want to perform contract work with the Defense Department must complete.

Outstanding work!

Billy's Blog - From our Head of School
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
--Margaret Mead

In a world that feels more and more interdependent, how do we help students develop a global mindset that prepares them for college and beyond? Perhaps last Friday’s International Day provides one way for students to learn the myriad opportunities and challenges that are awaiting them.

The day began in the Lower School with 3rd and 4th grade students’ pre-recorded presentations on a variety of topics from cooking to music that reflected their cultural background and traditions.
