Principal's School Message

As we begin a new era for School 16, I reflect on the differences between the old School 16, built in 1891 and the new School 16, built in 2016.  The new School 16 is a state of the art, sustainable energy building with three stories of classrooms fully equipped with interactive whiteboards, eco-friendly water stations, and laptops for every student. The old School 16 couldn’t fathom having such a great deal of information accessible to them at their fingertips.  With all that said, I cannot help but be reminded that the mission of the old School 16 was the same as the new School 16’s – making sure that students are collaborating, communicating, creating and thinking critically so that they are successful in their lives.  This, combined with a nurturing and fostering environment where students are respected and treated with kindness, creates an exceptional learning environment in the true tradition of School 16.
