A Graduating Waterford Family: The Brownings

01.19.15

Scott and Sally Browning are long-time Waterford parents whose youngest child will graduate in June — which makes them a “graduating family.” We asked them to reflect on their experience here, from the long view — looking back and looking forward.

Our family came to Waterford School in 2000. Eliza was entering Class IV, James, Class II, and Robert, Nursery 3. We came from a small private school in San Diego with a very similar core curriculum, but without the specialists — there was no one dedicated solely to art, music, science, dance, P.E., or computers as there is in the Waterford Lower School. After our first tour of Waterford with the kids, the school had been so impressive that when we asked them if they noticed the Quidditch field they believed this amazing school must have one and they simply missed it.

Our first year was eye-opening. Eliza, who had previously disliked school, now looked forward to it even though the homework load was so much more. Her homework included some of the most hilarious math problems by Mr. Johnson, and that had her looking forward to it. She continued through middle and upper school unafraid of the demands put on her and has continued to find pleasure in learning and research. Her interest in science was piqued in lower school when they were able to dissect a squid, given more breath in upper school as she traveled by boat with Dr. Malatesta doing research, and continues today as she studies biology and organic chemistry.

To that end, our IT department will be creating a series of brief “Did You Know?” tutorials that highlight some especially helpful features. The first of these shows you how to view your child’s upcoming assignments by date.
