Typically, high school is the time when young Eagles are maturing and are prepared to fly on their own. Encourage this independent practice. They will still need the watchful eye to guide them in their development and learning. Please do so during breaks and refrain from interrupting live instruction for the benefit of the students and teachers. The slideshow will include some additional ways you can support your learner in the virtual environment.

Conversation with the Head of School

We are incredibly appreciative of our families who engaged in the process of creating Drew’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan.  Your input was significant in ensuring that the plan collectively represents voices and aspirations from broad, diverse sectors of our school community. We are at the midpoint of the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan and would love to keep the conversation going as the implementation continues. Join our Head of School, Peter McKnight, on Thursday, January 19, at 6:00 pm, for the upcoming Conversation with the Head of School for a comprehensive update on where we are in the process.
