What do we seek

If Putney didn't already exist, we want students who would invent it for themselves.

 

 

We live, learn and work in a vital community where being ourselves and bringing our passion and drive, is not a luxury, but a necessity.

At Putney, we are searching for passionate, creative students who want to take advantage of the opportunities we can offer for growth in the classroom and in our community.

Putney teachers describe their most successful students as those who have an appetite for learning, more than for accolades and class rankings. Students must be eager to seize responsibility: for their own education and for the school. Putney works best for learners who believe in their own curiosity and who compete with themselves based on their own standards.

Putney students are as likely as their teachers to devise questions, to challenge assumptions and to propose new directions to pursue. And that’s the way we believe it should be.
