Ross School’s Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team announced plans to consolidate its student body on one campus for the 2018–2019 academic year, fulfilling the vision of Ross School founder Courtney Sale Ross of a single, unified learning community. Beginning this summer, all Ross students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 will occupy the school’s East Hampton campus.
Consolidating learning spaces will offer increased opportunities for collaboration and interaction among students of all ages and backgrounds, advancing the school’s mission of raising global citizens who can appreciate other cultures and their contributions to society. It will also allow the school to better leverage institutional resources and plan for long-term sustainability.
“Education is much more about the relationships faculty, staff, and students enjoy than it is about buildings, so despite the geographical change, the vision and mission of the school will remain unchanged,” said Jeanette Tyndall, Head of the Lower and Middle Schools. “All of our students will continue to benefit from a warm, welcoming atmosphere; a culture of kindness, respect, and collaboration; and an environment of academic innovation and success.”
