08/07/13 - We are already looking at another school for my child for next year. We signed a contract for a high school full of experienced, tenured and well-regarded teachers. As if September, the faculty will be missing at least five of those people! Faculty are one of the most important factors in school choice. Why have so many left? Where is the Board of Trustees regarding this exodus? Show More Show Less

08/07/13 - Not sure how someone can speak at graduation without being personable or knowing about the kids without index cards. Most impersonal graduation I have ever attended, it was actually uncomfortable. Why are traditions being ruined? Why are award winning teachers running for the door? Because they have asked questions, stood up for tradition and been labeled as 'trouble makers' for their effort. Shameless that this is what is being taught. I wonder if your previous schools still exist. Show More Show Less

06/06/13 - I do not understand why it appears that she has no respect for traditions. Many changes she has instituted have been disrespectful to the parent community, such as scheduling Upper School graduation on Friday afternoon, rather than the Saturday morning that it has been for years. Certainly parents make every effort to take off work, but can guests? Is this ultimately an effort to validate moving a beautiful outdoor ceremony into the everyday Art Center? Really...graduation is for graduates. Show More Show Less
