Congratulations to the recipients of the 2020 US Prize Day awards. At King, excellence occurs in a community context. Our 2020 Prize Day recognizes individuals as embodiments of excellence in a diverse range of areas that are all important to our School - but the fact is that no one can achieve anything alone. "Teachers, classmates' comments or debates in class or in study groups or teams, great assignments, careful coaching - this is what supports excellence. We all call on each other to seek excellence, and we at King never stop seeking it," says Marnie Sadlowsky, Head of Upper School.
