Portrait of a Learner

Our Portrait of a Learner organizes the school around the habits of mind and essential skills that represent the community’s vision for learning and prepare students for the world beyond school. A cross-divisional committee of educators led the process to create it, seeking input from a variety of stakeholders including teachers, students, alumni, parents, administrators, and the Board of Trustees. Focused on students and the types of learning they will do, the Portrait serves as a foundation for the rigorous and joyous work at our school.
