You remember forever the great teachers, the ones who went out of their way to know you, support you, and encourage you to do things you didn't think you could do. We still feel, even decades later, the affection and gratitude they inspired in us. Of course, there are good and great teachers everywhere, but independent schools intentionally create an environment where good teachers can become great teachers.
“I love working with students who are as passionate about their studies as about their sports or their friendships.”
Helen S., Independent School Teacher
“Independent schools foster in their teachers the expectation that they will be involved in the lives of their students beyond the classroom.”
Peggy E, Independent School Parent
