Dean of Upper School
Student Affairs Office
Upper School is a time for exploration, growth, and setting the foundation for the person you want to become. Whether graduation is 9 months away or 4-years from now, the new school year allows you to start fresh and be successful. Here are my “5 Steps to Success” that I encourage you to follow throughout the year:
Get Organized & Be Prepared
Master Time Management
Check Your Email Regularly
Communicate With Teachers & Advisors
Know & Utilize School Resources
The Upper School years at The Gregory School are an opportunity to practice the school's guiding principles of honesty, respect, responsibility, and safety while fostering our values of character, scholarship, leadership, and innovation. Our goal is to prepare our older students for life after graduation by instilling skills, opportunities, resources, and encouragement to become engaged and contributing community citizens.
A student receives coaching anytime they are referred to the Dean's office for a behavioral issue. Coaching consists of a conversation where the student may talk through their perspective of the situation, and consider the perspective of others involved. They will analyze their own choices and plan alternative responses or strategies for improved decision-making in the future. Coaching is not a consequence, but an opportunity to learn from mistakes.
