This year, more than any other, a return to something familiar seems to be a momentous occasion. Having the opportunity to consider a return to in-class learning, face-to-face interaction, time in person with friends, with mentors, with familiarity is something that is surely welcome.
For both our returning and new students, and their entire families who we care so deeply about, it is my privilege to welcome you back to something we have all missed.
As a parent of two children who have graduated from HTS, I say with confidence that our staff is dedicated to providing your children with an innovative, challenging and exciting learning environment. While high academic standards are the foundation of the HTS experience, we take pride in the development of students who are compassionate, confident and well-rounded. This means something.
I welcome you to encourage your children to participate in the breadth and depth of what HTS has to offer, including a rich co-curricular program that is available to them both in person and, as a matter of flexibility and convenience, virtually.
Whether this is your child’s first year at HTS or their final one, every moment at HTS will be filled with opportunities. We have learned a lot throughout the pandemic, and while not yet completely through it, our exemplary staff strives to create a safe and supportive environment for students to flourish – both in person and online.
We wish you a wonderful year! You are part of a community that cares deeply about one another and is committed to student well-being, inclusion, academic excellence and innovation.
My sincere wishes for both better times and a wonderful year,
