Students and faculty come from over 40 local communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Our students and faculty take the time to celebrate and nurture our strong and vibrant community in several ways, including:
Morning Meetings — Daily, school-wide morning meetings include a moment of reflection, celebrations of learning, and announcements.
Advisory Groups — Small and close-knit, advisory groups are composed of students and a dedicated faculty mentor. Advisory provides students with a dedicated source of academic and personal guidance daily.
“House” Communities — Each student is “sorted” into a unique house at the start of the school year (yes, kind of like Harry Potter!) Each house group includes students, faculty and staff. House meetings take place every other week and include team building opportunities and student-centered activities. Every house also completes a service-learning project during the year.
Inspirational Speakers — Each year, we invite a diverse group of women leaders to present and lead discussions for our entire school community. Past speakers have included UMass Amherst’s Dr. Whitney Battle-Baptiste, President of TD Garden Amy Latimer, and award-winning Filmmaker Mary Mazzio.
