Today was our first Late Start Day in the upper school. Once a month, from 8:00 to 9:30 am, the faculty will come together to learn from and with each other.
These mornings will provide upper school faculty extra time to focus on enhancing the academic program and improving the student experience. What do faculty think? They are thrilled. As educators, they know that the world is constantly changing and it is incumbent upon them to ensure that students are prepared not only for college but for the real world.
“There were great thought-provoking conversations,” said upper school Spanish teacher Andres Gonzales-Stewart.
Andrew Robinson, assistant director of college counseling, remarked, “It was great to roll up our sleeves and work on something that really matters and will yield results.”
Some of the key areas of focus included: exploring the upper school schedule, promoting digital citizenship, differentiation in the classroom, building resilient boys, and optimizing our advisory curriculum.
And, as a bonus, upper school boys got to sleep a little later this morning, something that research has shown teenagers desperately need.
The Boys' Latin School of Maryland is the state's oldest, non-sectarian all-boys private school for students in grades K - 12. We provide a rich and rigorous academic program that prepares students to attend top colleges and provides them with the skills and confidence they need to be successful in the 21st century.
