Life in the Lower School
The psychologists work closely with the division heads, faculty, learning specialists, health educators, and nurses to identify and address potential hindrances to students’ social and academic development, and emotional wellbeing. We are resources for students and parents, and work to facilitate communication and collaboration between school and home. We also act as liaisons to outside mental health providers to coordinate classroom accommodations and medication management. During the school day we are available for consultation, problem solving and crisis management. Through our work we seek to enhance the school’s capacity to fulfill our mission of honoring the individuality of each student.
