Phoebe Lewis describes what she loves most about the King School Grade 6 history program as "learning so many new and exciting things about our world's past. Our class has open discussions and we work on fun projects with groups that make us understand the material in a better way. From our identity projects to being educated more about Africa, it was interesting and informative. We read about personal stories regarding immigrants to various countries and this allowed us to understand our lessons in an informative and meaningful way."

Elizabeth Abbott '26 enthusiastically describes the joy of playing violin, sharing, "I love that we get to play during COVID times, and that I get to play an instrument I love, and have a passion for. Playing the violin is meaningful to me. The most challenging thing that I have learned when playing my violin is The Pirates of the Caribbean. It was both challenging and rewarding when it came together. What I look forward to learning in this program is how to play harder songs where we have to change strings faster, and especially for 8th and 16th notes."
Congratulations to the 42 seniors who have been accepted and have already committed to attend their first choice college or university!
