Columbia's age three through grade 12 independent school where students learn to expect more.
  • Respect for the dignity of every human, and respect for the unique mind of every learner.
  • At Heathwood, your child fits in precisely because he can stand out. And he learns to expect more – of his school and of himself – precisely because we respect his fullest potential.
  • When a child knows that her teachers and classmates respect her mind, her talents, and her way of seeing the world, she comes to expect more of herself.
  • He sets his goals high, sets to working hard, and surpasses even his own high expectations.

One story told of a slow turtle turned mover-and-shaker who mastered a magic Swahili phrase to save the day for his animal friends.  Donna invited students and faculty to the stage to see if they could recount the phrase.  (Ask Mrs. Nagy how she did!)  Another tale reminded students to be who they are, instead of pretending to be anyone else....

Homecoming Spirit is in the Air

Color wars.  Tacky Tourists.  Outer Space.  Homecoming?

Oh yes - these are just some of the competitions going on in the Upper School this week.  Culminating Friday with a beach theme, parade and banner competition, the Upper School students are showing their colors and their homecoming spirit as the Highlanders prepare for a 7:30 kickoff against Spartanburg Christian.   An all-school pep rally Friday afternoon is sure to bring a few surprises as students and faculty gather to support the Highlanders in anticipation of a great game and an the crowning of a new Homecoming Queen.

Special thanks to the Heathwood community for your support of Homecoming and Heathwood Athletics.  See you Friday!
