The Hun School is a community built on goodwill toward people of all backgrounds, and on inspiring the highest moral values in our students. In recognition of George Floyd’s horrifying and tragic death, we as educators wish to reaffirm our uncompromising opposition to hatred, violence, and other cancerous affronts to our shared humanity. We are a School deeply troubled by this event, and we grieve together.
“Misfortune is what you make of it, and what you think about the loss is up to you. Maybe its poignancy will make you cherish your Hun days and friendships more than ever. Maybe enduring an unprecedented pandemic will help you grow more confident in your strength,” said Headmaster Jonathan Brougham in a letter to the Class of 2020.
Q: In what ways has Hun Middle School prepared you to enter high school?
A: Hun has helped me learn a lot about myself, like my character strengths, my connections to people and really pushed my academic skills.
Congratulations to The Hun School’s Class of 2024 on completing their coursework and graduating The Hun Middle School. Students attended their final classes and activities this week, including a virtual awards assembly and talent show. The young Raiders will matriculate to the Hun Upper School this fall, but not before enjoying a traditional in-person graduation ceremony the day before classes begin again.
The following Middle School students were recognized at Wednesday’s closing assembly.
In a pre-COVID world, infectious diseases were not top of mind for most, but for Michael Russo, M.D. ’01, it is all in a day’s work. As a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Dr. Russo treats children stricken with serious or uncommon infections, as well as those with underlying health problems or differences in their immune systems. CHOP’s sterling reputation as one of the premier children’s hospitals means his patients hail from all over the world.
