"One of the things that is special about High Mowing is the artistic effort that goes into some of the simplest things; announcements at roll call, for example. They could be dry and informational, and some are, but many are acted out or 'adorned' in some way; and you find yourself laughing!"

~Colleen O'Connors, HMS science and humanities teacher [Read her full bio]
"A student’s request for extra studio time can easily turn into a session of intense focus in which we are able, in one afternoon and evening or a weekend, to move her through a project to the next level of skill and knowledge. To be able to choose this way of living and working is rare and essential."

APRIL 7 | HMS sophomore honored


Last weekend HMS sophomore Ethan Blair attended the Beautiful Minds Challenge Symposium at Marlboro College! Each year, teenagers from around the world submit their response to a prompt given by the Beautiful Minds Challenge. Ethan was chosen as one of the 25 Honorable Mention Entries, six of which will be chosen as finalists. Ethan submitted a photo (left) he took while travelling in Tibet last year. Congratulations, Ethan!


April 6 | 'Faust' art projects by HMS seniors


"One of the highlights of my year is teaching the Faust block to seniors.... The course is structured in High Mowing’s tradition of immersive, artistic learning, and each year I am moved by its power to transform the students’ understanding of themselves and their world."
~Wendy Bruneau, Academic Dean and humanities teacher [Read her full bio]
