A soaring skylight, bright blue walls, plentiful windows, and a wide-open, communal space greeted Hun Middle students on Wednesday morning as they went to school for the first time in the newly renovated upper floor of the Alexander K. Buck ’49 Building. The Facilities Department and the Middle School faculty spent Monday and Tuesday moving into the nine new classrooms. “We love it!” said students Renee Nearing ’21 and Bailey Kolaras ’21, almost in unison, as they walked through the new hallways.
Last weekend (January 21-22) was a homework holiday for The Hun School of Princeton. Under the policy, which is new this year, teachers in both Upper School and Middle School cannot make any large assignments or projects due until the Wednesday following the homework break.
On January 20th, The Hun Middle School took part in Ex-Day, an annual event in which students and teachers step away from their everyday curriculum and explore new areas of interest. Hun Middle School faculty and staff created and taught twenty-four mini-classes, based on their interests. Each was designed to allow the students to explore new areas of learning, and have fun while doing it. Middle School students attended four sessions of their choosing.
The Hun School of Princeton is an independent, coeducational, private day and boarding college preparatory school. Student-centered, hands-on learning prepares students for the global community in which they will live and work.
