Upper School At a Glance

Academic Highlights

One hundred percent of the Class of 2019 matriculated at schools on Forbes magazine’s “America’s Best Colleges” list — and that didn’t happen by accident. Twenty-three Advanced Placement courses, independent study opportunities, top-flight arts electives, expectations-busting seminars, global service projects, one-on-one mentoring — that’s how it happened.


University-level science labs, a state-of-the-art music wing equipped with instructional orchestra seating, a sound studio and practice rooms, a theater, dance studio and art gallery. Center for Innovation, featuring STEAM and robotics labs, an innovation lab, collaborative work/study spaces, a media and production studio, two art studios, art gallery and library and information center. 


Our 1:1 Laptop Program allows every Upper School student to take notes from every classroom’s interactive whiteboard, log on to the campus-wide wireless network, create, communicate and collaborate in a supremely global, dynamic, interconnected environment.


Sixteen varsity sports and a 78 percent participation rate. Beautiful multipurpose turf fields, five tennis courts, a field house, weight room and on-site trainer.
