The middle school girls went to great depths (literally) to learn more about the campus lake as part of a division-wide exercise that one student says helped her see the lake as “more than just a pile of water.”
Over the past two years, teachers in our Middle School have worked collaboratively to design a study of the lake that includes areas of study beyond science alone. This lake project was recently featured in "Science Scope," the definitive journal for middle and high school science teachers.
Nick Simpson's upper school Honors Civics class touches upon all aspects of civic engagement, including citizen-action through documentary film-making. This captivating video is yet another example of how Hutchison girls “learn by doing.”
Isabel Risch’s Science Fellowship included shadowing a transplant team, even accompanying them on a flight to procure an organ. Hutchison’s unique internship and fellowship program is an opportunity for upper school girls to explore interests outside the classroom.
For Isabel, that meant a fascination with the role of epigenetics in organ transplantation.
Hutchison teachers know how to energize their classrooms. It’s all about inspiring a love of learning and making connections across disciplines…Chinese class may take place on the campus farm and sixth graders compose operas about the earthquakes they study in science.
We believe bright minds need a healthy body, a compassionate soul and the freedom of creative expression. Ours is a balanced approach to education. We are equally vested in the girls’ intellectual, physical and emotional well-being.
We inspire lives of purpose, challenging girls to appreciate their community and the world around them. Beginning in the early grades, we promote the value of living in community. We cultivate ethical thinkers who make meaningful decisions and aspire to be global citizens.
