Hewitt Athletics had a tremendous winter season that saw our squash, indoor track and field, and basketball teams advance to their respective championship games. Our entire community watched with pride as these junior varsity and varsity athletes brought intense skill and determination to each game and meet.
Exploration, Transformation, and Joy
Hewitt’s middle school invites girls to embrace early adolescence as a time of exploration, transformation, and joy. Our learning culture is rooted in empathy—the ability to put oneself in another’s shoes—and Hewitt girls cultivate this essential habit of mind as both an intellectual and emotional practice. Middle school girls learn to support each other during a time of significant individual change, and their teachers serve as coaches and mentors in resisting pressures to conform and developing a sense of purpose as they explore who they are as young people.
