This article in The New York Times made me think about the community of character we have built over the last 50 years at Athenian. We could easily have been one of the highlighted communities. And it’s no surprise that Kurt Hahn was an inspiration for one of the school’s listed here. His fingerprints are all over what we have done at Athenian for all these years.
Beyond our students, I think our community extends to our parents as well. In a world where neighborhoods and community organizations no longer bind us as in the past, Athenian parents find a commonality and kinship in the educational choice they have made for their children. They too embrace our values and find lifetime friendships with others who do the same. Enjoy this article.
