Student Leaderhip

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.

Student Government

The Hun School’s Student Government wrote its own Constitution in November, 2011.  With a student-elected Senate, House of Advisory, and Executive Board, The Hun School’s Student Government brings together the voices and energies of ninety-one students to help shape the student experience at The Hun School.  Members of Student Government address the needs and desires of the student body.  They seek first to understand how the School might function better and secondly to assure that it can.

Leadership Curriculum

Students of the freshman and sophomore classes are required to take a semester-long seminar.  The seminar series of classes introduces and cultivates interdisciplinary skills such as communication, collaboration, and critical thinking as well as enforces the standards and expectations of academic rigor and community participation.  Leadership and community education continues through the years at The Hun School as Student Deans and Advisory Groups organize thematic grade-level opportunities at every grade level.  Opportunities range from important adolescent discussions to teamwork building scavenger hunts.
