We often say that our unofficial motto is, “words matter, ideas matter, people matter.” As a community of teachers and students, we ask essential questions and discuss ideas through reasoned and civil debate. There are several formal and informal ways that we engage in discussion with each other, whether through a small faculty book group or a large assembly with a guest speaker.
We invite you to join the discussion. During 2019-20, we will host a speaker on the first Monday of each month..Each event is free and open to our community and the public. We do ask that you make a reservation using the button below. Please check back for information on future upcoming events throughout the school year.
