Life Changing Experiences Inside and Outside the Classroom
The Dec 23 Holiday Food Giveaway was the capstone of Rowland Hall's comprehensive season of service, Director of Ethical Education Ryan Hoglund said. The season started with October's Crossroads Canned Food Drive, which raised 4 tons of canned goods and over $2,200. The next month, 30 Spanish-speaking Rowland Hall community members volunteered at the Crossroads Thanksgiving Giveaway, which garnered 3,900 turkeys.
With the start of this school year, Rowland Hall has adopted a different approach to the grading system, and with it, new lingo. Mr. Thomsen, Upper School principal, remarked, "A little more than a year ago, the school adopted a three-pronged strategic plan, which includes the overarching goal of incorporating current research on education, teaching, and learning into Rowland Hall's teaching model." With that in mind, Mr. Thomsen felt that adopting a growth mindset was a "tangible goal that, if effectively implemented, could have a significant impact" on the school.
In the spring of 2015, 58 percent of our students took one or more AP exams. Combined, they took a total of 438 AP tests. Of the tests taken, 93% earned college credit with a score of 3 or higher. Additionally, all 14 of the students who took one of the most challenging AP tests offered, BC Calculus, scored a 5 on the AP test which is the top score possible – a very rare feat.
The Utah High School Activities Association named Rowland Hall Girls Soccer Head Coach Bobby Kennedy the 2A Coach of the Year.
A hearty congratulations to Rowland Hall seniors who have been designated National Merit Semifinalists: Angela Foley, Callie Frey, Emily Gordon, Sam Lemons, Alessandra Miranda, Sophia Nielsen, Patrick Schloesser, Samuel Thomas, and Kelli Thompson. These nine students make Rowland Hall, once again, the school with the highest percentage of National Merit Scholars in Utah!
