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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • He sets his goals high, sets to working hard, and surpasses even his own high expectations.

The pages we have built are at this point free of any content — no pictures, copy or design elements. For now, you’ll have to take a leap of faith in imagining that the site you see at the prototype phase and the site you will ultimately see are the same site, even though they look nothing like one another at this point!

Upper School Students Gain Perspective During Hunger Banquet

The Upper School began its Thanksgiving holiday planning a bit early last week when they conducted an OxFam Hunger Banquet.  Sponsored by the Science Club, the banquet simulated a society of three different socio-economic classes, all eating together and yet, very separately.  

Senior Maddy Parrot was a member of the upper class and experienced fine dining with all the trimmings on a formally set table.  The upper class was served and received their food first.

  

Everyone else sat and watched us when we got our food, and that was just uncomfortable,” Maddy said.  “The worst part of it was sitting down to eat and then looking down on the floor and seeing my brother there with the lower class,” she added.
