Thank you for taking a look at Waring's demanding and powerful learning environment for students in grades six to twelve. Our diverse student body includes students from the North Shore of Massachusetts, as well as international students from China and India.
I was fortunate to work for many years at a selective liberal arts college as Dean of Students followed by a position as Associate Director of Admissions. When visiting and recruiting students from independent and pubic high schools in New England, CA and Washington DC, I would return home after visiting Waring and muse to my husband that something quite special must be in the water there. I wondered what the students I met would be doing in 10, 15, or 20 years because I was sure they would do good in the world.
Waring students asked me questions about study abroad programs because they had studied language immersion on campus and in France, not one but two times, and valued a genuine academic experience in another country. They had learned French
and French culture in a unique liberal arts environment. They explained to me that small class size and discussion was part of a collaborative learning approach that was practiced every day at Waring. They exuded confidence – already scholars-in-training without a shred of pretense. As a college recruiter, it was rare to meet students who could describe their school with the affection I witnessed from Waring juniors and seniors. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of this community?
You can imagine my delight when I assumed the Waring School’s Director of Admissions position 2 years ago, after years of meeting those exceptional students. I now have the great privilege to build future classes with students, faculty, and parents.
