Posted March 28, 2016 By

Wardlaw-Hartridge today is a school with an honored past that looks forward to a vital future. In some ways, we are not a typical independent school. We fly the flags of literally dozens of nations that represent the recent ancestry of our diverse student body. The student art that enlivens all of our hallways is rich with these multiple influences and traditions. We are committed to integrating technology, world languages and the arts into our liberal arts curriculum beginning with our youngest students. Our teachers routinely ask our students to pull ideas from multiple disciplines, and to express these ideas clearly in writing and in public speech.

At the center of the school experience is a vital energy, the spark of connections between students and teachers as they explore the thinkers of the past and present, as they puzzle out how to express themselves on paper, on canvas or on the stage, and as they work together to form teams that call forth the best that each individual has to offer. Whether you are a prospective student or a graduate, you will find a place that will excite your imagination. If you are a parent, you will find a school that welcomes a strong partnership with you.

In some ways, though, the school is the same as it ever was. The best reason for attending Wardlaw-Hartridge is still for the quality of relationships you build with teachers and peers. Our students are deeply engaged with their own learning, guided by dedicated and artful teachers. While they are acquiring skills demanded by universities, they are also learning profound lessons about themselves and how they wish to conduct themselves in the world. After spending most of my life in education, I still find no work more exciting than helping students make this exploration in an intentional and meaningful way.

End of Summer Is a Perfect Time for Self-Assessment

The new school year is quickly approaching us. The unofficial end of summer is Labor Day and we are back to the routine of getting up early, school assignments, sport activities (which means more driving), early breakfasts, meal planning and overall more activities.

Now is a good time for us to reflect and assess how our summer was spent prior to getting involved with all our children’s ...

Preparing to Let Go

It is that time again when our children are preparing to leave for school or in some cases leaving for the first time. It is a new phase in life for us and them that represents transition and change. Watching our children step into a separate world can be very challenging for us.  We care about their well being and it’s easy for us to imagine all the difficulties they may ...

Learning to Trust Again

Learning to trust again after trust has been broken takes time, healing and work.  Trust can be broken in many ways including being cheated on, betrayed, lied to, left out, or a break-up.

When someone breaks our trust, we no longer trust anyone.  This leads to isolation, loss, depression and unhealthy patterns in relationships.  On the other hand, others will find that someone ...

Spirituality Made Simple

What is the difference between spirituality and spiritualism?

Spirituality is an awareness of the spirit, of the soul; it is a sensitivity to things beyond the immediate and the material. That’s why some describe the study of spirituality as metaphysics — the study of that which lies beyond the physical.

Spiritualism, on the other hand, is how we describe the practices of ...
