The Hewitt School hosted Dr. Richard Weissbourd, faculty director of the Making Caring Common project (MCC) of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, for a conversation about moral parenting, building a practice of caring, and helping young people make healthy decisions about college.
Beyond the Classroom
Understanding that a rich and challenging program extends beyond the classroom, Hewitt offers abundant opportunities for students to develop their own sense of purpose and passion. Supported by their teachers and classmates, Hewitt girls act with confidence and empathy as they step outside of their comfort zones and embrace new opportunities to learn and grow.
Congratulations to the cast and crew of our fall production of The Wolves! These talented young women brought intensity, passion, and commitment to their performances of Sarah DeLappe's Pulitzer-nominated play.
Girls With Impact gave me the opportunity to learn real business skills that are typically taught at the college level or learned the hard way, in real life. I came to the program with a vision for a nonprofit that I had been thinking about for a while, and Girls With Impact helped me bring it to life.
Congratulations to our varsity teams on an excellent fall season! Thanks to their intense preseason training and an impressive commitment to their sports, the Hewitt Hawks brought home wins, grew as athletes, and developed strong bonds over the course of the season. Go, Hawks!
