“I don’t like to lose – at anything – yet I’ve grown most not from victories, but setbacks. I really think a champion is defined not by their wins but by how they can recover when they fail.” -Serena Williams

****Are you looking to lead a club? Are leading an already existing club? If so, please complete this Club Proposal form. Upper School club fair will be Wednesday, September 21st. Please see Dean Williams if you have any questions. 

Need help with math? Everyone does. Lucky for you that every morning before school you can find the coolest teachers on campus ready, willing, and able to help you! At least two members of the Upper School Math Department will be in room 504 between 7:45 and 8:05, five days a week, answering homework questions, explaining concepts, and helping you solve all your problems…well, the math ones anyway. Your teacher isn’t there? Don’t worry! All math teachers can help with most levels of math. What a great opportunity to get to know a different teacher! For now, we won’t have Math Café during Office Hours or after school, so if before school doesn’t work for you, work with your teacher to set up an appointment or stop by the math office in room 500 next to the library, across from the elevator. We are here to help all students be successful!
