Our Community

Ours is an intentional school community founded out of the progressive education movement, guided by a strongly held belief in our mission and core values, and supported by the careful stewardship of generations of alumni, families, faculty and staff.

We take tremendous pride in the community ethos and vibrant school culture we have cultivated over a century. Our aspirations for our students and our school demand that we always view our school as a work in progress.

Our goal is an inclusive community where all people are treated with respect and dignity, where multiple perspectives and experiences are welcome, and where students from all cultures and backgrounds can succeed.
