Balance and Flexibility
Our Assistant Head of School, Brian Gilloran, talks about the importance of balance and trying new things on campus, “We create a structure to instill the habits in our kids so that they can try everything, as long as they do it in a methodical, deliberate way. The goal is to support that student holistically and encourage them to try as many things to better understand who they want to be in the future”.
