Upper School

Autonomy and a Burgeoning Sense of Purpose

Hewitt’s upper school celebrates the autonomy and burgeoning sense of purpose that come with young adulthood. Hewitt’s young women in grades 9 through 12 develop a keen understanding of how they learn, how they construct and manage their time and obligations, and how they both express their individuality and connect to their community, at school and beyond. Trained in the research on girls and young women, upper school faculty members foster inquiry, resilience, and collaboration in their classrooms, and students know and trust their teachers as wise and caring mentors.

To ensure that her students can make and create while they are away from the art room, lower school art teacher Robin Lentz developed a collection of activities and how-to videos that require nothing more than something to draw with and a piece of paper. In this video, Ms. Lentz models for students how the art of doodling is a mindful experience that helps us stay focused and present in the face of distraction.
