Back to school!

During back-to-school conferences, students kept telling us the same thing: That they couldn't wait to come back! So for the Lower School's first writing class, we asked them to collaborate and tell us why. This is what they had to say:

School is Better Than Summer

Upattinas is different than most schools. Our campus is great because we have woods, a climbing tree and a gym.

We all play and take classes in the same stone farmhouse.

At Upattinas, our voices are heard. We have a share in the decision-making and we all care about each other here.

During the summer we all missed school. We got out of school on June 1st and wanted to be back on June 2nd!

Even though summer had some fun moments, it wasn't long until we were bored.

Thank goodness we are back now and we can't wait to learn!
