Ceres M. Horn Theatre
We understand that some families may have questions about the student device program in the Upper School. On Tuesday, March 11 at 7 p.m in the Horn Theatre, we will be offering a special presentation to share details about the program. You and your child will also have the opportunity to interact with different kinds of devices with user consultants on deck to answer any questions. We recommend that you attend this event before making any device purchases.
