World Languages in the Liberal Arts

Date:  Thursday, October 25, 2018 Byline:  Tim Stout, World Languages Department Chair

A liberal arts education prepares students to adapt and thrive in a world of rapid change, cultivating the development of the whole person, while resisting premature specialization. In the World Languages Department, we take the liberal arts to heart—we believe that students can achieve high levels of proficiency in their chosen languages, and that in doing so, they should also become well-informed, culturally open-minded learners who are prepared for global responsibilities and community engagement.

Update on Admissions and Enrollment

Date:  Friday, May 4, 2018 Byline:  Todd Winters, Director of Admissions

We are deeply appreciative of the ongoing advocacy and support for our admissions and outreach efforts. The School’s enrollment is healthy due, in part, to the work of our Parent Ambassadors in their admissions outreach and support of new families in their journey to Waterford. More broadly, each and every Waterford parent is an Ambassador and we are grateful for those of you who share your “Waterford Story” with prospective families.

Middle School Students Share Letters with Victims of Hurricane Harvey

Date:  Thursday, December 14, 2017 Byline:  Nancy Nebeker, Middle School Dean

After Hurricane Harvey hit the Southwest, all 215 Middle School students watched a video about the floods in Texas.  Simultaneously, we had some guided discussions on empathy and compassion. We then wrote letters to Middle School students who lived in the area most deeply impacted by Hurrican Harvey. Yesterday, the principal of Riverwood Middle School sent me the email below. Today's assembly gave me a moment to read this letter aloud to our community. It lifted my spirits, I hope it does the same for you.

Nancy,
