Leadership is a dynamic and important part of Upper School life. Each of the Five Councils has grade-level representatives determined by a combination of election and appointment, and all Activities have a leadership team. To facilitate the development of leadership skills, all student leaders take part in biannual short- and long-term goal setting activities, and all student leaders meet regularly with the Dean of Student Life to review goals, discuss program, and reflect on the challenges and opportunities of leadership. It is the difficult, sometimes messy, and rewarding tasks of leadership that challenge our students to grow and prepare them for the world beyond SCH. Reflection, discussion, and mentorship play an important role in the development of experienced and skilled student leaders.
