Life Changing Experiences Inside and Outside the Classroom
Rowland Hall's interdisciplinary performance "Gallery" brought the departments of music, art, dance, and creative writing together in a collaborative showcase that challenged viewers to let their senses be their guide.
On February 12, the Rowland Hall debate team won the elite College Prep Debate tournament College Prep Round Robin in Oakland, California. Only the top 16 teams in the country were invited to compete and on Friday night, Rowland Hall seniors Jaden Lessnick and Emily Gordon won the tournament and were recognized as the first and second speakers.
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.
