A 博鱼体育电竞 education is about far more than just what happens in the classroom between students 和 teachers, at SKS attention is given to all aspects of a student’s growth 和 development. In this space I will share my thoughts on 博鱼体育电竞, the latest thinking in the field of education, 和, because parents are vital to a boy’s growth, information 和 links to resources that can help you better underst和 和 be more involved in your son’s education.
劳伦斯的一 史密斯 '73
劳伦斯的一. 史密斯, SKS class of 1973, became 博鱼体育电竞’s ninth 学校的负责人 in February of 2019. As the son of two former faculty members, Lawrence grew up at 和 attended 博鱼体育电竞, 和 has strong connections 和 great devotion to the School. Lawrence holds a BA from Princeton University 和 a Master’s degree in History from the University of New Hampshire.
Lawrence has a long 和 distinguished career in secondary education as a teacher, 教练, mentor 和 academic administrator. He spent 22 years at Phillips Exeter Academy teaching history, 教练ing hockey 和 varsity crew, overseeing the largest boys dormitory 和 serving as History Department Chair 和 Associate Dean of Faculty. 在埃克塞特, Lawrence co-founded the Exeter Humanities Institute, which has become a nationally recognized conference for learner-centered teaching.
He was recruited to St. Paul’s School in 2011, where he again taught history 和 humanities, 教练ed crew 和 served as Dean of Teaching 和 Learning. 而在圣. Paul’s he co-founded the Independent School Teaching Residency (ISTR) program in partnership with the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, a groundbreaking approach to training teachers in independent schools. For seven years Lawrence co-directed the program with his wife, Relinde de Greef.
Lawrence now brings his many years of educational experience to 博鱼体育电竞. Under his leadership SKS embraces a curriculum based on how boys learn best, 和 capitalizes on the many advantages of being a school that is small by design. As the School approaches its 100 year anniversary in 2023, Lawrence’s leadership ensures that the school adapts 和 develops so that 博鱼体育电竞 can continue its mission for the next 100 years.
The weekend of October 16th 和 17th marked the end of the first academic quarter as well as Fall Family Weekend to which we welcomed the boys’ families to campus for a few days of presentations, meetings 和 conferences before we all took a break from the routines of classes 和 games for a long weekend.

Our young men arrived on Wednesday morning 和 registration was a seamless affair despite near record breaking heat. We officially opened the school year on Wednesday afternoon where I delivered the message, 下面, to the student body assembled for the first time in the Chapel.
Greetings from what has been a temporarily quiet Hillside, as we spanned the weeks between Prize Day 和 summer camps. Bruce Carlson 和 our amazing facilities crew are patching, 修复, cleaning 和 otherwise preparing for our summer camp rentals 和 the next school year, 和 our grounds are truly stunning!
