Tower Hill believes that learning extends well beyond the classroom and takes character education seriously, emphasizing that responsibility requires action, not simply good intentions.
In the Lower School, a character curriculum is an integral component of daily teaching. A school Code of Conduct, which encompasses traits of respect, responsibility and honesty and is introduced in preschool, is reinforced throughout each grade level.
Community service projects are executed every year in each grade, providing a hands-on understanding of the value of service to others. We help our Lower School students understand that service is not always simply collecting money for something outside of school, but it also involves helping people within our own community.
