Parents of eighth-graders are invited to the Next Steps event for parents on Wednesday, February 6th. This event is designed to help answer any questions you may have and provide an outline of the opportunities that Upper School will offer your child. A key component to the evening will be presentations and question-and-answer sessions with students who have participated in various programs. We will also spend some time getting to know more about your student and what they need/want from Upper School. The event will begin in the Curtis Performance Center at 7:00 p.m. and should conclude around 8:00 p.m.
During the school day on February 6th, eighth-grade students visit the Upper School for their Next Steps program. Current eighth-graders get a taste of what it is like to be in the Upper School, as we want them to be excited about all the opportunities that we have to offer. They will spend time in classes, participate in panel discussions with current Upper School students, and get a chance to eat lunch with Upper School students and faculty. We will also speak with them about clubs, athletics, arts, and the advisory program.
