Welcome to the Upper School

I am often asked to describe the typical student at The Masters School. This is a particularly challenging question because what first attracted me to join the faculty here is the school’s longstanding commitment to attracting and serving an exceptionally diverse student body, including students of different nationalities, races, and socio-economic and religious backgrounds.
We welcome every student's experiences and perspectives in our classrooms, dormitories, clubs, and athletic teams. We consider this diversity our greatest educational resource, as it constantly challenges students and faculty alike to consider new ideas and ways of seeing.
My years as an Upper School teacher have given me a clear knowledge of the common effect that our diversity has on both students and faculty. It encourages each member of The Masters School to develop a commitment to community, to see and promote the best in ourselves and others, and to have an open mind and open heart.
