Year Joined Stuart Hall: 2008

"Stuart Hall has an incredibly rich 170+ year history, yet we remain at the pinnacle of educational initiatives. At STU, students are nurtured and challenged to be intellectually curious, creative, and to be contributors to the local and world-wide community. The result is a school in which kindness is palpable Beginning in PreK, students are taught to be honorable and ethical global citizens, critical thinkers, creative innovators, effective communicators and collaborators. All of this is possible because of a commitment to having a top-notch faculty, staff, and board who are dedicated to remaining the Best Independent School in the Valley."
