The Student Perspective

Meet A Student Tour Guide

Lauren, Class of 2022

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am an eleventh grader here at Hewitt. In addition to all of my classes, I am very involved in our performing arts department and participate in Hewitt’s plays and musicals. I have been a student tour guide for the past two years, and I am excited to answer some of the questions I get asked most frequently during my tours!

In December 2020, the Hewitt community came together for a socially-distanced signing day celebration in honor of Anne M., Class of 2021. A Hewitt athlete who played basketball and soccer and rowed crew, Anne will continue her sports career next year as a Division I rowing recruit for UCLA. We spoke with Anne about her journey as an athlete, the importance of teamwork, and how her time as a Hewitt Hawk has prepared her for the future.

Instead of relying on dry textbooks to teach confusing concepts, my freshman physics class showed me how effectively student-led, hands-on labs based in real-world scenarios could help break down complex principles. My experiences in ninth grade physics have given me the courage to pursue a subject that I initially thought would be overwhelmingly challenging, which feels heartening and empowering.
