An independent day school for grades 6-12


The Upper School has taken on a Middle School tradition with regular DEAR moments during advisory periods (the MS has DEAR sessions every Wednesday). DEAR stands for "Drop Everything And Read," which is a national movement to inspire personal reading habits...

...and take a break from screens and school work. The entire division — including students and adults — takes a half-hour to decompress with a physical book during DEAR. It feels relaxing when you're not reading for a specific purpose as it allows you to unplug, if even for a few minutes.
