A Gift to Quench the Thirst for Learning
Friday, December 05, 2014
It isn't often that, in the waning days of a school year, a check arrives unsolicited for nearly $300,000. Last June, we experienced just such an occurrence as a result of a bequest by a former student from the 1940s. Elizabeth Wright Colton, who passed away in 2009, attended Rowland Hall for several years before graduating in 1944 from The Emma Willard School in Troy, New York, and continuing her education at Dartmouth University. The photograph you see here was taken at the beginning of her junior year at Rowland Hall School for Girls.

The Rankings Game: To Play or Not to Play?
Friday, December 05, 2014
In 2013, while we were momentarily flattered to be named one of Utah's and the nation's "Most Challenging High Schools" by The Washington Post, we were also flabbergasted because we had not even sent in the date the newspaper had requested. So last year, Director of College Counseling Bruce Hunter responded with a letter to Jay Mathews, the journalist behind the newspaper's rankings, in which he explained why Rowland Hall doesn't participate in rankings and cited the stance of our accrediting body, the National Association of Independent Schools, on rankings: "Ranking of schools encourages a destructive competitiveness, leading institutions away from offering rich alternatives and toward a stultifying sameness. It is a disservice to the schools, concerned parents, and children, and therefore, to our society."

The board is made up almost exclusively of parents who care deeply about Rowland Hall. Of the 26 members of the board, 20 are current parents and five are former parents.
