As a parent with a child about to enter her second year at Waring, I cannot disagree more with the June 2014 and June 2013 posters. The school is outsanding, and the new headmaster is exactly the right leader for taking this school forward and continuing to strengthen its incredible impact on the students. I understand people don't always like change, but change and progress/positive evolution are very different things. The posters below from March 2013 capture the true Waring experience in a nutshell. The school is not for everyone - but it is right if you want an academically and culturally intensive, multifacted education in a small, community oriented and liberal arts atmosphere. The school does ask a lot of its students, but it gives a lot more in retrun. My child relishes the hard work (across academics, music, sports, art, language), the socratic approach, the independence, high level of accountability and community throughly. She cannot wait to go back, despite the high demands placed in her each day. I only wish I could have attended Waring myself. Terrific leaders, teachers, staff, students, parents. We are thrilled to be a Waring family.
