Preparing students to thrive in a world of constant change is at the heart of a Hun School education. Not only are students taught to explore academic theories and to communicate thoughts concisely, they are guided to use their voices to establish educated opinions and lead. Leadership takes many forms at The Hun School, and student leadership opportunities are everywhere.
In the classroom students express their ideas, persuading one another to see beyond their individual scope. On the fields of competition, athletes encourage those around them to focus their abilities and energies to achieve greatness as a team. In the performing arts, students direct productions, symphonies, and choirs, bringing together the talents of many to create art.
These opportunities help students develop skills in communication, collaboration, time management, prioritization, and planning. Sufficient breadth and variety within those roles helps The Hun School maintain its valued culture of diversity, student empowerment, and impassioned participation.
The measure of any School program is in the voice it provides students to help shape it. Student leadership is not only about opportunity, but a responsibility to contribute. Students are not just receivers of information, but participants in the community.
